Just reading on the BBC news page that roman abramovich has had secret investments in players that didn't play for chelsea....let's hope it gets the same scrutiny that our owners get.....no I don't think it will either.....
A leak of documents - banks' "suspicious activity reports" - that have been called the FinCEN Files and seen by BBC Panorama - has revealed that Mr Abramovich is behind an offshore company called Leiston Holdings.
Leiston was taking stakes in footballers overseas through third-party ownership (TPO).
This is where investors buy a share of a footballer's future transfer value from cash-strapped clubs.
The practice was banned in the English Premier League in 2008 but not internationally until 2015.
he's a bent fucker
