Todd Boehly consortium bid figure revealed as Raine names shortlist ahead of Chelsea takeover

Todd Boehly’s consortium bid to buy Chelsea has been revealed as Raine Group selects the parties to move on to the next stage of the process.

The Boehly Group was the first to be informed of its winning bid despite being on the shortlist. Sir Martin Broughton’s camp was next as the Ricketts family just made the cut despite backlash over anti-Muslim comments before Stephen Pagliuca was confirmed on the shortlist. There are also reports of a mystery bidder still in the mix.

Now the figure Boehly’s consortium offered to buy Chelsea has been revealed.

According to Sami Mokbel, sources have said Todd Boehly’s bid for Chelsea is just south of £2.5billion, while Broughton and Sebastian Coe’s offer is said to be just below that.

It has also been reported that the Raine Group’s shortlist for Chelsea’s preferred bidders is not yet complete despite reports that the final five have been decided.

However, Boehly will participate in it no matter what, because their offers meet the expectations of the Raine Group and they will take the next step.

The American is joined by Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss, real estate developer Jonathan Goldstein and has the backing of Clearlake Capital.

Additionally, Boehly has added Daniel Finkelstein to its consortium in an advisory role with Barbara Charone as non-executive directors of Chelsea’s board.
