• Intends to buy Messi and Ronaldo
• Wants to sell Romelo Lukaku
Chelsea is being eyed by a Ghanaian gold mine entrepreneur who has expressed interest in becoming the club’s new owner.
Since Roman Abramovich announced his intention to sell the club, a number of billionaires have expressed interest.
Bernard Antwi Boasiako of Ghana has disclosed his ambitious aspirations to purchase the club, and has already identified three of the world’s best players to sign and one to sell.
The West African businessman said what he wants to do now is purchase Chelsea Football Club. He is a businessman who engages in gold mining and claims he has the financial means to invest £3 billion.
He was cited by a Ghanaian radio station as saying, “I want to go and acquire Chelsea Football Club. It piques my interest. The folks who buy football clubs aren’t footballers; they’re business people. In addition, I am a businessperson. I’m a gold prospector. Why aren’t we able to purchase the club?”
He continues, “’I’d like to participate in the bidding.’ If I become the owner, I want to sign Vinicius Jr., a Brazilian player at Real Madrid, and sell Romelu Lukaku.”
‘I’m going to contact Manchester United to see if I can get Cristiano Ronaldo for Chelsea as well. I’d also consider bringing Lionel Messi in.”
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Abramovich decided to sell the club. Boasiako, a politician, gold mine owner, and radio station owner, has until March 15 to submit an offer, Chelsea’s deadline.
His net worth is unknown, but according to reports, data in his hometown show it might be worth up to £76 million. He would face heavy competition for the Stamford Bridge club if he made an offer.
Nick Candy, a British property billionaire, is expected to make a £2.5 billion bid for the club this week. A proposal has been made by Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss and his partner, Todd Boehly, as well as Chicago Cubs chairman Thomas Ricketts and other names.
