British racing driver, Lewis Hamilton on Friday confirmed his interest in being a part of former Liverpool chairman, Sir Martin Broughton’s consortium seeking to buy London-based club, Chelsea.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Hamilton explained his and Serena Williams’ motive after committing millions of pounds to Sir Broughton’s bid to buy Chelsea.
The sale of Chelsea comes after owner Roman Abramovich decided to sell the club following sanctions placed on him by the UK Government.
The sanctions were part of a reaction following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. With Abramovich’s assets frozen, the Blues were placed under a special sporting licence, meaning they couldn’t sell tickets or merchandise, as well as number of other restrictions such as a cap on travel costs.
A number of bid deadlines have come and gone. Hamilton and Williams join a number of high profile names included in the bidding process; however the former’s inclusion may come as a surprise due to his support for Arsenal from a young age.
