Conor McGregor reaffirmed his interest in buying Chelsea Football Club while also revealing he is exploring the possibility of purchasing two other clubs.

McGregor expressed an interest in buying Chelsea after Roman Abramovich's announcement that he was selling the club following sanctions on Russian businessmen from the UK government.

The Irishman took to social media to express his interest in buying Chelsea.

He tweeted: "I wish to explore this. @ChelseaFC," accompanied with a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation with an unknown person, saying: "Chelsea for sale £3bn, let's buy it."

And now he has reaffirmed his interest in buying a football club by tweeting that 'the purchase of a franchise is in his future'.

McGregor wrote on Twitter: "I do not speak in jest. I am exploring this, as I said. Celtic from Dermot Desmond, Manchester United from the Glaziers, and now the recently up for sale Chelsea football club. All being explored. A football franchise purchase is in my future make no mistake about it."

He followed that by saying: "Everyday I ball. How wouldn’t I lead a team of young, dedicated athletes to glory. I’m perfect for the job. Pray it’s your team."

Both tweets have since been deleted.

Last year, McGregor expressed an interest in buying Manchester United, after the club were involved in the European Super League scandal.

"A conversation came up regarding Celtic first to be honest. To acquire shares from Dermot Desmond (an Irish businessman who is the largest shareholder with the team)," he wrote on Twitter.

"I am certainly interested in acquiring a sports team at some stage! Both Celtic and Man United are teams I like for sure. But I am open. I feel I could do big things for a club."
