A report revealed that Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, owner of Chelsea Football Club, traveled on his private plane to Istanbul and the Turkish capital, Ankara, on Wednesday, often to sign the deal to sell the club to Turkish businessman Mohsen Bayrak.

An investigation revealed that the owner’s new plane (48.7 million pounds), one of 6 private planes owned by Abramovich, flew from the Russian capital, Moscow, to Istanbul, before heading later to Ankara, amid reports that the deal could be announced no later than Monday.

Bayrak, whose fortune is estimated at 8 billion pounds, confirmed the existence of negotiations, adding: “The Turkish flag will fail soon in London. They want to transfer most of the money after the sale to Turkey because Turkey is safe.”

Muhsin Bayrak heads the Mutikan tribe, the most famous Turkish family, based in Dilis, with a population of 50,000 people in eastern Anatolia and located on a steep hill in the valley of the Bitlis River, a tributary of the Tigris River.

Bayrak is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the “AB” Holding Group, which invests in digital currency, real estate, tourism and the energy sectors. Bayrak, who founded the group in 1999, is headquartered in Istanbul but has subsidiaries in Italy, Greece and Spain and is said to have investments in London. And the report suggested that Abramovich, who was his last public appearance with the team in the capital Abu Dhabi on the sidelines of the Club World Cup crowning, is inclined to conclude the deal with Bayrak because the Swiss billionaire Hansorg Weiss “does not like football very much” and does not respect Abramovich and will not be generous in order to guarantee titles And that his alliance with the American Boehli, owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball club, to form a group to buy the blues aims only to expel Abramovich from Stamford Bridge, and this does not fit with the popularity of the Russian owner with the club’s fans and may eventually lead to a clash with them.

For his part, former French star Nicolas Anelka, who joined Chelsea in 2008, described the owner Abramovich as “high-class” and added: “He managed to make Chelsea what it is today and won almost every title available. We rarely saw him when I was there but when he came to the dressing room he was classy and respectful. He prefers to stay behind the scenes and not talk to the media or try to grab attention. It’s sad to see what has turned out because he has done so much for English football and for Chelsea and I think all Blues fans would agree with me.”
