The contractual guarantee that Chelsea bidders must sign to buy a club


A contractual guarantee is expected to be signed by Chelsea’s next owners, which promises future investment in the club once the takeover is complete.

According to Sky Newsthe last four bidders still on Chelsea’s shortlist to buy the club must be prepared to commit to a contractual guarantee.

The report explains that the new owner will have to commit to at least £1bn of future investment. It is understood that £1billion of additional funding is set to go towards Stamford Bridge, the player squad and other areas of development.

It’s the kind of news that will cheer worried Blues fans worried about spending after Roman Abramovich.

A final shortlist of four potential investors has been widely speculated, so it will now take a little more patience to see who wins out in the takeover saga.

The Todd Boehly Consortium, along with a group including David Blitzer and Josh Harris, are two of the favourites. Elsewhere, the Ricketts family and Stephen Pagliuca complete the shortlist of four.
