John Terry 'wants to buy stake in Chelsea' as part of fan investment bid with tech mogul
John Terry could buy a stake in Chelsea after teaming up with a technology mogul.
With co-owner Todd Boehly open to outside investment, Terry could be about to get involved financially with the club, where he enjoys legendary status. According to The Telegraph, the former England defender is part of a group that is looking at buying a 10% stake in the Stamford Bridge club.
The report says the stake would incorporate fan investment via PrimaryBid, an online technology and investment platform which is co-owned by Anand Sambasivan, a Blues season-ticket holder. Sambasivan is also PrimaryBids chief executive.

Terry has explored buying into Chelsea in the past and was part of the True Blue consortium which looked at buying the club following the swift departure of Roman Abramovich in the wake of Russias invasion of Ukraine, though it was Boehly and Clearlake Capital who ultimately took over the club. Clearlake owns around 60% of Chelsea, with the remaining equity divided between Boehly, Hansjorg Wyss and Mark Walter.
