The amount of money Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck, and Director Marina Granovskaia will reportedly earn as Roman Abramovich finally hands off the Blues has been revealed.
The UK Government on Wednesday morning finally approved the sale of the west London club to Todd Boehly’s consortium.
The consortium has now bought the Premier League club from Abramovich.
According to the New York Times, the two of Chelsea’s key board members who have been helping to push through the sale will reportedly profit hugely from it now it has gone through.
Buck stands to make £30million from the club’s £4.25bn sale to Boehly, while Granovskaia is said to be collecting £20m as the huge takeover was finally sanctioned.
The duo would pocket roughly £10m ($12.5m), from the sale – with commissions to management totalling as much as £50m.
Buck, who has been involved with Chelsea since 2004, will join Boehly on the new-look board, though it is not clear what involvement Granovskaia will have in the Stamford Bridge outfit going forward.
