British billionaire offers Abramovich £2bn to buy Chelsea

Britain's richest man, Jim Ratcliffe has approached Roman Abramovich to discuss buying Chelsea Football Club after the Russian billionaire's future in Britain was thrown into doubt.
Ratcliffe is understood to have offered about £2bn for the club. This comes as Abramovich struggles to renew his UK visa in the wake of Theresa May’s crackdown on rich Russians living in Britain after the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury .

The Chelsea boss was reportedly incensed at not being allowed to watch his club play in this year's FA Cup Final on May 19 and within days he applied for and was granted Israeli citizenship .

It is understood that Mr Abramovich has rejected the offer. Chelsea said only that its Russian owner remains committed to the club which he bought in 2003 in a deal worth £ 140m
