Ghanaian gold mine owner declares interest in Chelsea

Ghanaian gold mine owner Bernard Antwi Boasiako has expressed interest in buying Premier League side Chelsea FC.

Club owner Roman Abramovich confirmed that he was selling the club with a number of people having already shown interest in taking over the team who have done tremendously well under the Russian.

Speaking to Ghana's Wontumi FM radio station, Boasiako revealed his ambitious plans to buy the club and has already named three of the world's biggest players he would like to sign and one he would look to sell.

"I want to go and buy Chelsea Football Club. I am interested in it. Those who buy clubs are not footballers, but business people. I am also a businessman. I'm into gold mining. Why can't we buy the club?

"I want to join the bidding. If I become the owner, I want the Brazilian player at Real Madrid, Vinicius Jr and to sell off Romelu Lukaku. I will speak with Manchester United to see if I can also buy Cristiano Ronaldo for Chelsea. I'd also look at signing Lionel Messi.

"Roman Abramovich has done his best. It is now time for him to support a Ghanaian or an African to buy Chelsea," the Ghanaian said.

Chelsea has put a deadline of March 15 for bids from those who would like to purchase the club and Boasiako will have to submit his papers before then if he is to stand a chance.
