Petr Kellner, the richest Czech and the owner of investment company PPF Group, is considering buying a stake in Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich's Chelsea Football Club, the Lidove Noviny newspaper reported. Abramovich, known for his close relations to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, is mulling a full or a partial exit from Chelsea after the U.K. government didn't renew his visa this year.
