Roman Abramovich has had a Chelsea scouting app developed for his iPad

Roman-AbramovichThis is just truly bizarre, but hey the Russian billionaire has the money to throw around. You never know the man might just sign you based on his new scouting app!

Roman Abramovich is keeping track of Chelsea’s next superstar signings on a specially adapted personalised iPad.

Sportsmail can reveal Chelsea’s owner has become infatuated with the device and is constantly monitoring progress reports around the world.

It means Abramovich can keep track of scouting across the world from his enormous boat Eclipse or whenever he is in the air on his Boeing 737 jet.

The system is constantly updated in a database at Stamford Bridge and Abramovich is one of only a select number of people who can access the system.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes the scouting system is the most advanced in world football – better than previous clubs Real Madrid, Porto and Inter Milan.

Thousands of players are constantly under assessment by the club’s network of scouts all over the world.

Chelsea will only consider a player if scouts score them 90 per cent or more in various areas of their game.

It’s the reason Radamel Falcao was overlooked by Chelsea when his ‘movement outside box’ fell short of the magical 90 per cent minimum. But Andre Schurrle was deemed to be a good signing by the Bridge hierarchy.
