Potential Chelsea FC buyer Nick Candy wants a ‘fan representative’ on a future board and will offer short-term funding to secure the club.
The property developer is one of a series of interested parties looking to buy the London club, who’s sanctioned owner, Romain Abramovich, put up for sale.
Candy is a childhood Chelsea supporter and is currently in talks with financiers about a potential bid for the Stamford Bridge club.
Chelsea are facing a series of financial difficulties as a result of the UK government putting the club’s owner Abramovich on their sanctions list.
As a result, the club have financial caps on their match-day expenditure, are unable to sign or re-sign players, and are currently unable to buy new shirts without the Three sponsor logo on.
Speaking to Sky Sports Candy said: “I’ve supported Chelsea since the age of four, my dad was asked to play for Chelsea.
“I love Chelsea. I don’t mind where it ends up, even if it’s not with me, as long as it’s in safe hands.
“They [fans] should be involved in the ownership, both on the board and economically.”
Candy also confirms the ‘best bids’ deadline is Friday.
