Ghanaian businessman and politician, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, alias Chairman Wontumi, has reportedly submitted $3.1B to buy premier league giant, Chelsea FC from Roman Abramovich
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) believes he has the financial power to meet the side’s £3 billion valuation price set by the current owner.
Abramovich announced his decision to sell the club a few weeks ago in the wake of the Russia and Ukraine conflict.
Speaking to Kumasi-based Wontumi FM, Chairman Wontumi said his gold-mining business can finance the purchase of the club.
“What I want to do now is to buy Chelsea Football Club. I’m a businessman, I do gold mining and [I can afford] £3 billion,” he said.
“I want to join the bid to buy the club. If I buy Chelsea, one of the first players I bring in is the Brazilain Vinicius Junior… What is £3 billion?”
