Chelsea, who won the English Premier League title a year ago, have announced plans to put on ice a massive redevelopment of their Stamford Bridge stadium.

And now there are issues regarding the plans to build a new stadium, with reports suggesting owner Roman Abramovich has put the 60,000-seater stadium plans on pause. "No further pre-construction design and planning work will occur", Chelsea said in a statement in London.

These are uncertain times in the future of our football club.

"The decision was made due to the current unfavourable investment climate".

Oil prices mixed on trade strains and production gains
Saudi Arabia clearly in favour of higher oil pricesThe success of Saudi Arabia's fiscal deficit target is dependent on oil prices. The fall in prices of oil for drivers has been welcome news as it has been for companies that purchase large amounts of energy.

The potential for tumult at Stamford Bridge is now of a different magnitude.

Earlier this week, Abramovich flew to Israel to gain Israeli citizenship after apparently struggling to renew his British visa.

And Birch, who oversaw the sale of Chelsea to Abramovich, told the Today programme: "I wasn't really surprised (by the news) because it's obviously linked to the visa situation".

Abramovich's "Home Office stand-off" has left Chelsea in "limbo", according to The Daily Telegraph, and he has reportedly withdrawn his United Kingdom investor visa application "in retaliation to the hardline attitude of the Home Office".

"Maybe he will support Israeli football because in fact it's in a pitiful state", Koren said, citing Chelsea's success and adding wistfully: "If only we had a football team at such a level".

"I think it's a really sensible decision to put this on hold".

Chelsea finished the season fifth in the Premier League table and won the FA Cup.

A clause in Sarri's contract that would allow him to leave Napoli for £7m expires at midnight on Thursday, but Chelsea have so far been unmoved by that particular deadline.
