Former Chelsea defender John Terry is reportedly part of a group looking to purchase a 10% stake in the football club.
Terry, who retired from professional football in 2018, is said to be looking into making an offer for the Blues after reports suggested that co-controlling owner Todd Boehly was open to new investment.
According to The Telegraph, Terry and his partners are looking to bid 10 per cent that would embrace fan investment through PrimaryBid, whose co-founder and chief executive Anand Sambasivan is a season-ticket holder at Stamford Bridge.
This attempt isn't the first one by Terry to buy a stake in the club. The former England defender was part of a £250million consortium which aimed to supply supporters with a 10% share in the club.
The attempt, portrayed by the True Blues Consortium, came when former owner Roman Abramovich was forced to put the club up for sale last year after being sanctioned by the UK government following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Boehly and Clearlake Capital went on to complete their £4.25billion takeover of the club at the end of the 2021/22 season. Since their purchase, over £1billion has been spent on new players.
