Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports confirmed the development when he tweeted:

“I can confirm Saudi Media Group have made a £2.7bn ($3.5bn) offer to buy Chelsea. Mohamed Alkhereiji is a Chelsea fan and leading a private consortium. No direct government links.
"There is support in finding funding and partners (but not financial backing as far as I am told) from Mohammed bin Khalid Al Saud. What's interesting about Khalid Al Saud is he's also chair of Saudi Telecom Company (STC)."

Alkhereiji was in attendance for Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester United last year. He has previously lived in the UK, where he attended the Cass Business School in London.

The 50-year-old also has ties with Saudi football clubs Al Nassr and Al Hilal. The Premier League giants have attracted plenty of interest since Abramovich put the club up for sale.

Nick Candy set to make £2.5bn offer for Chelsea

Meanwhile, Nick Candy who is a British property developer has reportedly appeared to be working on submitting a massive £2.5billion bid to buy Premier League giants Chelsea.

It is no longer news that outgoing owner Roman Abramovich wants to sell the club due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine which has claimed the lives of many people.

The conflict is still ongoing between these two nations and Roman Abramovich has been attacked due to the fact that the billionaire is a Russian.

Nick Candy and his younger brother Christian are British luxury-property developers, estimated to share a joint net worth of £1.5billion.
