Most of us have been pondering that the race to purchase Chelsea Soccer Membership has largely simply been a two-horse race.

Nevertheless, as is at all times the way in which with these conditions, the race has stayed large open and might be extra open than many people believed.

Boehly’s group have at all times gave the impression to be the most effective general consortium to purchase Chelsea for a lot of causes, and most Blues followers nonetheless imagine that is the case. However there’s an outsider developing the rear who the 2 favourites will probably be firmly trying over their shoulders at proper now, and that’s Stephen Pagliuca.
To start with, John Terry’s True Blues consortium got here out and introduced that they’re publicly endorsing Pagliuca’s bid and backed them. That is big information alone and can make Pagliuca’s group very talked-about for a lot of causes.
John Terry’s True Blues Consortium of Chelsea followers wanting to amass a ten% stake within the membership as a part of its imminent sale by Roman Abramovich has endorsed the bid spearheaded by non-public fairness billionaire Steve Pagliuca and NBA chairman Larry Tanenbaum.
Then, Pagliuca himself confirmed these occasions with an official assertion, one which contained the total listing of traders in his group, a bunch of very rich folks thus making his consortium now very financially sturdy in addition to skilled.
