"Following the sanctioning of Roman Abramovich, the Government has worked hard to ensure Chelsea Football Club has been able to continue to play football. But we have always been clear that the long-term future of the club could only be secured under a new owner.

“The steps today will secure the future of this important cultural asset and protect fans and the wider football community. We have been in discussions with relevant international."

The deal was believed to be waiting for the European Commission to give their seal of approval due to the fact that Abramovich is a Portugal citizen.

The announcement is expected imminently, with the Blues ready to step into the transfer market and rebuild the Chelsea squad this summer.
