  • Chelsea stadium put on hold

In a statement, the club did not say whether the decision was related to the visa problems of Abramovich who was reported to have taken Israeli citizenship earlier this week.

Earlier this week, The Post reported that Abramovich's United Kingdom visa request had not been denied, as some press had reported, but was under review.

The visa issue is widely believed to be the main reason for Chelsea owner Abramovich putting the club's planned redevelopment of Stamford Bridge on hold. "The club does not have a time frame set for reconsideration of its decision".

News has broken today that Chelsea has chose to suspend their plans for a new stadium because of an "unfavourable investment climate".

But it is understood that Abramovich's decision will have no impact on the running of the football team.




Chelsea are expected to move into gear when director Marina Granovskaia returns from a break next week but Sarri no longer appears to be first choice to succeed Conte amid concerns about his past.

However, Birch added: "Of course to maintain the value of his (Abramovich) investment he needs to invest in players - and he didn't last season".

Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron, who built the Allianz Arena in Munich, the Bird's Nest in Beijing and other iconic stadiums, had won the tender to revamp Stamford Bridge.

His tenure as owner has brought a string of success to the club, including five Premier League titles, the Champions League title in 2012, and a Europa League triumph in 2013. He applied for a new one, but it was not granted.

On Thursday, there were also reports that Chelsea had terminated contract talks with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
