    With £600m in his pocket, Usmanov looks to buy another club. If I was in his shoes, I would probably look at Newcastle. Huge stadium, good manager and loyal fans.

    How rich is he? Are we talking Blackburn poultry or Manchester black gold?

    I heard from someone I really trust that he's pretty much certain to buy Chelsea.

    I suspect he will want to stay in London, like all the other oligarch crooks. He could buy Charlton for next to nothing of he really wanted a challenge.

    How much would Roman want for Chelsea? I suppose, the more hideously expensive the better, and preferably with the new crook leveraging the cost against the club.

    No fun with this type of projects anymore. If there's one thing that FFP actually affects it's preventing smaller clubs from joining the big boys by doing a Chelsea/Man City

    Talk he's rejected offers to invest in Everton and Charlton. All bollocks, press making up stories as they know he's just sold his arsenal shares.

    What would your reaction be if he brought 30% steak LFC? We are the most exciting team to watch.

    Usmanov net worth 12bill
    Abramovic net worth 11bill

    He's got a few quid alright. Whether he'd want to throw it all down the pan converting someone into the new PSG/City FFP dodgers is another matter. He'd have to fork out 1bill+ now to buy one of the big teams?

    He was reported to have made a bid for Arsenal which valued the club at £2bn.  FSG are thought to be looking for a minority shareholder, I have feeling he might be interested

    The dude who told me he's buying Chelsea looks after the personal wealth of loads of lizards, proper big hitters. He doesn't make shit up.
