Abramovich announced his intentions to sell the club after 19 years of ownership last week following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
The 55-year-old failed to find a buyer however and he's now been added to the UK's sanction list, putting a number of restrictions on Chelsea.
It's been reported Chelsea can still be sold as long as Abramovich doesn't benefit from the sale in any way.
However, as things stand, Chelsea are unable to hand out contracts to their players and it means they'll be losing up to eight for free in the summer unless the situation changes.

The three big departures this summer could be club captain Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
Azpilicueta has been at Stamford Bridge for a decade but is considering his future.
Rudiger's wage demands were said to be too high for the club prior to the recent sanctions, while Christensen is reportedly ready to sign a pre-contract agreement with Barcelona.
Manager Thomas Tuchel could be forced to use a number of players currently out on loan next campaign, as they won't be allowed to sell them.
Chelsea are currently third in the Premier League and won the Club World Cup earlier this year.
