Chelsea is expected to receive a huge unpaid tax bill next month after investigators revealed all the remaining liabilities of Roman Abramovich’s estate, according to the Telegraph.

It has been revealed that during the Russian’s tenure in charge, club executives were forced to reveal unforeseen liabilities initially worth a total of £2.5bn.
