Chelsea takeover: Six 'serious' bidders ahead of 9pm deadline as deal set to cost £2.5bn


British businessman Nick Candy, who has the backing of Chelsea hero Gianluca Vialli, is also still in the running, alongside a bid from Aethel Partners which is spearheaded by Ricardo Silva. 

The Saudi Media Group are also alleged to have submitted a massive bid earlier this week, which could see them topple another consortium including ex-Liverpool chairman Sir Martin Broughton and London 2012 chief Lord Coe. 

While the aforementioned names are out in the open, Sky Sports News theorise that plenty of other serious candidates are likely to be waiting in the wings. Best bids are to be submitted by 9pm on Friday before the group is whittled down.
