LeBron James’ love for other sports and sports franchises is not hidden from anyone around the world. The four-time NBA champion is keen to expand his portfolio with elite ownership. As a result, he was successful in acquiring some stakes in Liverpool and Boston Red Sox. This time, however, it appears that another staff member from the Lakers family has become the prime candidate to buy Premier League giants Chelsea.
So who is this staff? According to ESPN’s James Olley, a group including Los Angeles Lakers and Dodgers part owner Todd Boehly has advanced to the next phase of the process to buy the Stamford Bridge team. Boehly wouldn’t be the only one buying the Premier League club, however, as his group includes Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss and British real estate investor Jonathan Goldstein, among others.

Todd Boehly and Group lead pact to buy Chelsea
To get everyone on the same page, Chelsea ownership has been put up for sale since sanctions were imposed on owner Roman Abramovich over his alleged ties to Vladimir Putin. Raine Group, a New York-based merchant bank, is handling the sale of the club and has accepted more than 30 bids.
According to reports cited by Clutchpoints, “The other, confirmed on Friday morning, is the consortium led by British businessman Sir Martin Broughton, former chairman of British Airways, which includes World Athletics President Sebastian Coe and is rumored to have Crystal Palace shareholders Josh Harris and David Blitzer involved target.
“Sources told ESPN last week that Raine would likely identify two or three offers that should be brought to the Chelsea hierarchy for consideration, with the exception of Abramovich.”
Now the Rickets family, who own the Chicago Cubs, have an offer. However, there was some backlash due to racist comments made by Joe Ricketts in leaked emails a few years ago.
With Chelsea struggling to secure their place in the top 4, an official ownership agreement soon could certainly calm the nerves of all their players.
