Chelsea news: The Prime Minister alongside the UK’s Sport Minister have both been speaking about the country’s relationship with Saudi Arabia and the importance of it
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has given his ‘indirect’ approval already to Saudi Media’s Chelsea takeover bid with his ‘relationship’ admission between the UK and Middle Eastern partners.
This follows on from Nigel Huddleston’s recent admission on Saudi Arabia which has both bolstered and boosted Saudi Media’s claimed £2.7billion bid to takeover from Roman Abramovich. The likes of Nick Candy and Todd Boehly’s consortium amongst a few others had been heavily touted around the English press over the last few weeks but Mohamed Al Khereiji and his friend Al Saud’s bid has gone slightly under the radar so far.
With regards to Saudi Media’s rumoured interest in buying Chelsea, CBS Sports claim that there is support in finding funding and partners (but not financial backing) from Mohammed bin Khalid Al Saud. It is also understood in the English media that the rather unknown consortium have a long way to go before submitting an official offer to the Raine Group before this Friday’s bid deadline surpasses.
