Ghanaian gold mine owner Bernard Antwi Boasiako has revealed ambitious plans to buy Chelsea and sign Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

A number of billionaires have shown interest in purchasing the Blues after Roman Abramovich announced his decision to sell the club.

​Boasiako, who's also a politician and radio station boss, revealed his plans of buying the club while also admitting he would like to sign two of the world's biggest players - Ronaldo and Messi.

"I want to go and buy Chelsea Football Club. I am interested in it," he told Wontumi FM.

"Those who buy clubs are not footballers, but business people. I am also a businessman. I'm into gold mining. Why can't we buy the club? I want to join the bidding."

He added: "If I become the owner, I want the Brazilian player at Real Madrid, Vinicius Jr - and to sell off Romelu Lukaku. I will speak with Manchester United to see if I can also buy Cristiano Ronaldo for Chelsea.

"I'd also look at signing Lionel Messi. Roman Abramovich has done his best. It is now time for him to support a Ghanaian or an African to buy Chelsea."

Boasiako net worth is unknown, but reports have claimed it could be around £76m.

The Ghanian will face stiff competition if he were to make a bid for the Stamford Bridge outfit, with the likes of New York Jets owner Robert 'Woody' Johnson and UFC star Conor McGregor also interested in buying the club.
