Former Chelsea captain John Terry is reportedly seeking to make an investment into the club
Terry had previously been part of a £250million consortium which aimed to buy supporters a 10 per cent share in the club.
The consortium was established when former owner Roman Abramovich put the club up for sale last year, after he had been sanctioned by the UK government following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Terry fronted the True Blues Consortium, which claimed it would allow fans to buy a stake in the club for as little as £100.
The consortium had vowed to elect one representative to sit on Chelsea’s board with fans who buy into the scheme would also get voting rights.
