Chelsea are desperate – Lyn director

Chelsea have luanched a £16million legal fight against FC Lyn Oslo and its former chief executive Morgan Andersen over John Obi Mikel.

Moan said: “They should know that there is no money to get at Lyn. Most of the Norwegian clubs are not close to being able to pay such amounts.

“I read in an article in the DN (Norwegian business newspaper) about Chelsea and Abramovitsj. He has lost much money lately. I think it is interesting that the lawsuit comes right now.”

Reports from Bloomberg suggest the Chelsea owner has lost over £10billion in the past five months.
