Share

The Ricketts family is reportedly among the parties interested in purchasing Chelsea FC.

Sky News reported Saturday the Cubs owners are considering an offer for the Premier League club and "are expected to hold talks with prospective financing partners about a proposal."

Chelsea owner and Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich announced this week the club is up for sale amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine. 

Estimates in different media reports suggest the sale could be worth anywhere from $2-4 billion.

The Ricketts family, which purchased the Cubs for $846 million in 2009, has expressed interest in acquiring a soccer club in the past. They were a reported suitor for Italian club AC Milan in 2018.

According to Forbes, Cubs' team valuation is $3.36 billion, and Chelsea's is $3.2 billion.
