Chelsea Football Club to sue Sunday Times Newspaper

11:04 am on 22 January 2009

The Chelsea football club has confirmed Roman Abramovich will sue Britain's Sunday Times over a report claiming he wants to sell the West London Club.

The front-page article, published last Sunday, alleged the Chelsea boss had taken soundings about selling the Premiership club to Gulf Arabs, including members of the Saudi royal family.

Chelsea denied the claim and announced they are to sue for libel.
