Former Chelsea‘s Chief Executive Trevor Birch has warned Blues’ fans after Roman Abramovic decided to halt the £1bilion redevelopment of Stamford Bridge facing also many difficulties in getting a new UK visa.
Some rumors suggested the Russian is considering to sell the club and Birch, who left the Premier League giants in 2003, told BBC Radio 4: “Chelsea fans now face the prospect of no stadium, no manager and no star player if Eden Hazard, above, moves to Real Madrid. The stadium news is obviously linked to the visa situation.
“There have been rising costs and it’s a difficult project to deliver, but this is clearly Roman [Abramovic] upping the ante in the spat with the Home Office. If the visa issue isn’t resolved anything could happen.”
