2. Having that blood money hanging over the club was gonna be bad

 

Not clear what "stewardship" as opposed to ownership might be, but handing it over the CFC Charitable Trust. Probably fearing sanctions affecting the cashflow from Stamford Bridge.

3. At some point, Putin's food taster is going to suddenly keel over.

They're starting to squeeze all the right people.

5. It's complicated, but a flat out sale would supposedly ruin the club.

Something to do with how the sanctions work make a sale difficult at the moment. And even I don't want to see an old, storied team go under like that.
