The most recent name mentioned in connection with a possible acquisition of Chelsea FC is Mohamed Al-Khereiji. Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine earlier this month, Roman Abramovich placed the club up for sale. As a result of his connections to President Vladimir Putin, Abramovich has subsequently been subject to penalties by the government of the United Kingdom. Saudi Media Group is now claimed to have made a £2.7 billion offer to purchase the Blues, with club supporter Mohamed Al-Khereiji in charge of the deal.

Are there any connections between Mohamed Al-Khereiji and the Saudi government?
Al-campaign Mohamed Al-Khereiji is being financed in part by Mohammed bin Khalid Al Saud, the chairman of the Saudi Telecom Company, a government-owned corporation. The Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may also be seen on Alkhereiji’s social media profile photo. Although there have been claims to the contrary, it doesn’t seem like he has any direct connections to the Saudi government. Any potential purchasers would need to demonstrate that there is no paper trail or legal connection to a government, as was the case with Newcastle’s takeover.
