We have a very reliable report that Aliko Dangote who happens to be Africa richest man will take over ownership from Chelsea current owner Roman Abramovich.
In 2017 Aliko Dangote, the President of Dangote Industries displaces several billionaires including Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich to become the 100th richest man on earth with a net worth of $14.1billion.
The report also claimed that the takeover could happen in summer 2019.

When Aliko Dangote said: “he will turn his attention away from Arsenal and buy another football club, if Stan Kroenke makes it clear he will not sell to him“, we never knew he had his hands stretch at Chelsea.
A report by BBC last year about Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich “withdrawing” his application for a UK visa and the delayed plan to build a new stadium could be the reason he intends to sell Chelsea.
We know Roman Abramovich is looking to sell a minority stake at Chelsea as reported by the Telegraph, what remains mysterious is the full take over by the African richest man Aliko Dangote.
