UK government happy with Chelsea bidders

The UK government are happy, in principle, with the four preferred bidders to buy Chelsea football club.

The candidates on the shortlist have until Thursday of this week to make their final offers, and then there will be a further delay whilst various checks on the individuals behind the bids are conducted, although now these do not seem they will take as long as first anticipated.

However, it means that there is an increased likelihood that it will be known before the end of the season who the new owners will be, and the club can begin operating normally again, without the need to operate under special licence as is the case currently. .

That will mean that plans for the summer transfer window, which have had to be shelved, can be dusted down again and contract negotiations can resume with some of the players that they would like to keep at Stamford Bridge.
