OGC Nice: Chelsea’s threat to be taken seriously?

As revealed by the Times yesterday, Jim Ratcliffe, boss of Ineos and majority shareholder of OGC Nice, is currently looking to buy Chelsea from Roman Abramovich for a record £ 4bn investment. An acquisition that, if it goes all the way, will have direct consequences on the Gym, relegated from the status of flag club of the Ineos galaxy to that of satellite club of the Blues.

Indeed, UEFA regulations prohibit two clubs of the same owner from playing in the same European competition. Having left Chelsea to play the Champions League, Nice could be – if Ratcliffe’s offer hits the mark – sold or strongly encouraged to play only the Europa League or the Europa League Conference. However, some precedents (RB Salzburg – RB Leipzig, Chelsea (formerly) – Vitesse Arnhem) show that this regulation point is not always applied scrupulously …

Fortunately for Nice, several rumors suggest that Ratcliffe and Ineos are not in pole position for Chelsea. According to the BBC and Sky Sports, Todd Boehly, co-owner of the Dodgers (baseball), leads the way with an offer from his consortium estimated at € 4.17 billion.
