Irish professional mixed martial artist, Conor McGregor, has indicated interest in buying Chelsea FC.

McGregor announced his interest in London club on Wednesday shortly after Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, confirmed he was going to sell the club amid impending sanctions against him and other Kremlin-linked billionaires in the wake of Russia invasion of Ukraine.

“I wish to explore this,” McGregor said in a tweet, posting a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation in which he was told that Chelsea will be sold for £3 billion.

Currently worth €170 million, according to Forbes, McGregor made much fortune from his whiskey brand Proper Twelve, raking in €131 million last summer after divesting from the company. It is however not clear how he hopes to raise the £3 billion price tag for Chelsea.

On Wednesday, Mr Abramovich in a statement announced he is putting Chelsea up for sale and its proceed will be deployed to care for war victims in Ukraine.

Following Russia invasion of Ukraine, UK lawmakers had proposed ban on Russian billionaire owner of Chelsea FC, forcing Roman Abramovich to surrender control of the football club.
