Billionaire Roman Abramovich has found a possible site for Chelsea FC that runs along Warwick Road, between Tesco in West Cromwell Road and Kensington High Street.

It could take advantage of reasonable public transport links via Olympia and High Street Kensington stations.

“This huge development area is mainly owned by the Prudential and two other developers,” says local Tory councillor Victoria Borwick.
