Abramovich Son Eyes Club?

COPENHAGEN — The son of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has met with the head of a Danish pension fund, sparking rumors that he may buy a stake in the company behind Danish club FC Copenhagen, a newspaper reported Thursday.

Arkady Abramovich “chiefly” talked about football during Saturday’s lunch with Carsten Koch, chief executive of pension fund Loenmodtagernes Dyrtidsfond that owns 30 percent of shares in Parken Sport & Entertainment, which owns the club, Ekstra Bladet reported. The pension fund has said in the past it was interested in getting rid of its stake in Parken.

Copenhagen, seven-time winner of Denmark’s top league, is second in its Champions League group and could become the first Danish team to advance to the knockout stage of the competition.
