Football: Abramovich to sell Chelsea?

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich considers selling FC Chelsea to an Arab country, reports the Russian news agency Interfax quoting The Sunday Times newspaper. Abramovich's envoys have reportedly visited Saudi Arabia and Dubai to make a market research. His envoys even had a meeting with the unnamed representatives of the Saudi royal family. It is still unclear if his proposal met any interest among Arabs.

Meanwhile, a Chelsea spokesman described as a total absurdity the reports that Roman Abramovich is set to sell the London club.
