Next Chelsea owner: Stephen Pagliuca copies Todd Boehly trick as ownership decision approaches

Majority owner of Atalanta and one of the four shortlisted bidders to takeover Chelsea, Stephen Pagliuca, has copied Todd Boehly by reportedly attending a Blues game in the flesh to make his intentions known.

Todd Boehly and the Ricketts Family seem to be the two frontrunners in this everchanging race with both consortiums having been shown Cobham already. The former of the pair was even pictured and filmed at Stamford Bridge watching on from the executive box as Chelsea fell to a first-leg Champions League defeat against Real Madrid. It was a move that went down well in the fanbase.

All interested parties have until April 18 to improve their offers as the Raine Group in conjunction with senior Chelsea figures prepare for the next phase of the new ownership search. Whoever is to win the race has a number of issues to sort out. But it seems as though Pagliuca has now followed Boehly’s suit in watching Thomas Tuchel’s Blues in real life and instead of the Real Madrid midweek fixture in which the part-time LA Dodgers owner attended, he waited a few days to travel to the South Coast.

This is according to Goal’s Nizaar Kinsella who tweeted: “New: Stephen Pagliuca is in the UK and is said to have attended Chelsea’s 6-0 win over Southampton. He has been meeting with various stakeholders around Chelsea, including meeting Paul Canoville about diversity, inclusion & charity work. Very much a 4 horse race for Chelsea FC’s ownership.”
