Jim Ratcliffe is now the richest man in Britain – and has keen interest in buying Chelsea FC.



What’s the point in being the richest man in Britain if hardly anyone knows about it?

Jim Ratcliffe has held this prestigious title for several months, but he’s still not as famous as the people who have done a thing with their lives, like Adam Woodyatt. Or Matt Jarvis.

Jim Ratcliffe would want to see Matt Jarvis start up a chemical engineering firm and turn it into a multi-billion pound company. 
This is what Jim Ratcliffe did, but unlike Matt Jarvis, he still do not get the adulation of the fans, or women throwing themselves at him in the street, or an England cap. All he gets is money.
And how do you turn money into fame? Simple: you buy a football club. Ideally, Chelsea.
Roman Abramovich was Russia’s, Jim Ratcliffe, Fifteen years ago. Now, Jim Ratcliffe wants to be, Roman Abramovich of Great Britain.
The Mail gathered that the 65-year-old boss of multinational petrochemicals giant Ineos, who also happens to be a season ticket holder at Stamford Bridge – has “expressed an interest” in buying over the Blues.
Rumor has it that Abramovich could be prepared to sell the club after getting in a pickle with UK immigration authorities, but the freshly Israelified oligarch is said to have politely “rejected” Ratcliffe’s offer.
And he’s not even a Chelsea fan, by the way. The only reason Ratcliffe has that season ticket is that he’s got a house around the corner from the ground. He actually supports Manchester United. All wrong on so many levels.
But to boost Ratcliffe’s case, he has just received a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list. Can’t see Abramovich getting one of those – they won’t even give him a visa.
