The legendary former Chelsea skipper, 42, and his partners are believed to be keen on purchasing a 10 per cent stake.

The Telegraph claims that “would incorporate fan investment through the online technology platform PrimaryBid”.

Their chief executive Anand Sambasivan, who was also co-founder of PrimaryBid, is a Stamford Bridge season-ticket holder.

However, Terry’s group is just one of a number of potential investors keen but there are question marks over whether “they can raise enough cash”.

Terry, who led Chelsea to five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, the Europa League and and Champions League during his glittering 22-years at the West London giants, has previously looked into investing in his former employers.

He was also part of a “True Blue” consortium that was keen to buy the club from Roman Abramovich before Boehly and Clearlake Capital bought it last summer for £4.25m.

That resulted in Clearlake owning 60 per cent of Chelsea, while the rest of it is divided between Boehly, Mark Walter and Hansjorg Wyss.

Even though ex-defender Terry missed out in 2022, he and one member of the original group remain keen on buying a stake.


But other firms from and individuals are also, including US-based Ares Management, the firm that looked to invest in Manchester United in the past.
