The British driver Lewis Hamilton, multiple Formula 1 champion, and the American Serena Williams, former number one in women’s tennis, will invest more than 20 million euros to associate with Martín Broughton, the businessman who intends to acquire the English Chelsea, which was in power the Russian Roman Abramovich.
In this context, as announced by the Sky News television network, Hamilton and Williams “could become the new owners of Chelsea after both famous athletes decided to invest in the English club”
The sale of Chelsea continues to be delayed after the sanctions imposed by the English government on Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last February.
Hamilton and Willimas would add their financial support to businessman Martin Broughton, former owner of Liverpool and the airline British Airways, according to the information collected by the Mundo Deportivo newspaper.
The British businessman is at the top of the list of favorites to take ownership of Chelsea and the fact of having the presence of Hamilton and Serena Williams in his group of investors would make the process easier for him as they are such influential personalities in the world of sport, add the middle.
