The long sell-off seemed to be nearing a conclusion, with New York-based Bank Rain Group – managing the process for Abramovich – reportedly ready to announce their preferred bidder.

But Ratcliffe has now put his hat on the ring, with a bid to invest £ 1.75 billion in Chelsea over 10 years and pledge another 2.5 2.5 billion to a charitable trust to help victims of Ukraine’s war.

It is learned that Ratcliffe’s offer is by far the biggest for the London club. Ratcliffe founded the chemical company Inios, which is known for sponsoring the British cycling team Inios.

The 69-year-old explored a potential bid for Chelsea in 2019, but was bought by French club Nice instead.

“This is a British bid, for a British club.” An Ineos statement said. “We will invest in Stamford Bridge to make it a world-class stadium, suitable for Chelsea FC.

“It simply came to our notice then.

“We will continue to invest in the team to ensure a first-class squad of the best players, coaches and support staff in the world in men’s and women’s sports.

“And we look forward to continuing to invest in the academy to give talented young people the opportunity to develop into first-class players.”

Todd Bohley, co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Martin Broton, former chairman of Liverpool, and Steve Pagliuka, co-owner of the Boston Celtics, starred in three other consortia bidding to buy the 2021 Champions League winners.

“We believe that there should be a club in London that reflects the dignity of the city. Which is held on the same subject as Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich. We want Chelsea to be that club. Ineos said in a statement.

“We are making this investment as fans of the beautiful game, not as a means of profit.

“The club is rooted in its community and its fans. And that’s why we want to invest in Chelsea FC. “

Chelsea are hoping to get a new owner by the end of May as boss Thomas Tuchel plans for next season.

Due to the ban on Abramovich, Tuchel is unable to give existing players new contracts or to sign players from other clubs.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudigar and Andreas Kristensen are both expected to make free transfers later this season.

Once Rain Group selects a preferred bidder, the government must issue a new license to complete the sale.
