Broughton’s group adds star power in bid to buy Chelsea

The story of Chelsea FC is that of a tumultuous one.

The conflict between Roman Abramovich and the UK Government has run its course following his announcement to sell the team.

Many parties have been linked to being candidates to become the new owners of the organization, including the likes of UFC fighter Conor McGregor. However, a serious contender for the bid has become
Sir Martin Broughton, deputy chairman of International Airlines Group, which is the parent organization for British Airways.

He’s been long linked to the event since the sanction was placed on the current owner.

And now, notable businesspeople and athletes are tied to Broughton’s journey.

Today it was revealed that F1 driver Lewis Hamilton and tennis great Serena Williams join the consortium backing the Chairman’s bid to buy Chelsea.

The tandem are added to the likes of Crystal Palace co-owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer, as well as investment bankers Michael Klein and Lord Coe, who are on board with Broughton’s regime.

The two parties are alleged to want any say on footballing decisions.

It is still up in the air on who will be next, as, from American soil, LA Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca is also in the running to take over.
