Chelsea reportedly held talks with Saudi Arabia state airline Riyadh Air over becoming its main shirt sponsor, as the club's search for a replacement for Three continues.

The Blues' home and away kits have been blank so far this season, with their attempts to replace the mobile network facing legal challenges from the Premier League.

According to The Athletic, however, that could be set to change as Chelsea executives - including CEO Chris Jurasek - hosted Riyadh Air representatives at Stamford Bridge on Saturday for the Blues' 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest.

The report indicates Chelsea presented a pitch to the airline to become their front-of-shirt sponsor for the men's and women's team.

The Athletic said the pitch was for a multi-year deal and that the club is looking at an overall package of 60million per year to cover both the men's and women's teams.

Riyadh Air already sponsors Atletico Madrid and is owned by theSaudi Arabias Public Investment Fund (PIF), the majority owner of Newcastle United.
