Wouldn't this be great if it happened. First we hammer them then this. Is the end of the Best team Chelsea ever had?

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is considering selling the club, according to The Sunday Times.

The paper claims that representatives of the Russian billionaire have been in Dubai and Saudi Arabia in an attempt to drum up interest over a possible sale.

The Sunday Times even goes as far as to quote a ‘source' of the Chelsea owner as saying, “Abramovich's team have been out in the Middle East sounding out what interest there is in buying the club.â€

Abramovich bought the club in 2003 and his finances have largely been responsible for the club's recent success.

The Blues have claimed two Premier League titles and also reached the final of the Champions League last season.

The Russian brought the club for £60 million, yet is thought to want around £800m for the club, after having invested heavily in his five years as owner.

Abramovich was a committed follower of the blues initially, but his visits to watch the club have become noticeably less frequent recently and he missed last weekend's 3-0 defeat to Manchester United.

These absences, added to the fact that he has reportedly been hit heavily due to the current economic crisis, has all led to speculation that he may be ready to part ways with the West London club.

Chelsea have always rejected suggestions that Abramovich is looking to pull out tof the club, although with his side not the dominant force of old, his reluctance to release funds in the transfer window and his increasing absences at the club on match-days may suggest otherwise.
