But why is it important to point out that they are legends, even if it is obvious? To understand why the bid they are supporting is the favorite to take control of Stamford Bridge. Williams is also an investor of Angel City FC of Los Angeles, which plays in the National Women's Soccer League.

Other important sports personalities such as Sebastian Coe, former leader of World Athletics, Josh Harris, and David Blitzer, shareholders of Crystal Palace, are also part of the list.

Broughton's candidacy is in the lead

In the eyes of the British government, this is the most attractive proposal to take over the management of Chelsea. It makes sense, as placing experienced leaders in charge of the Premier League club will, barring any surprises, provide stability to its employees that has been lost, as Petr Cech has already publicly acknowledged in recent months.

In addition, the economic aspect is not negligible. With those almost 24 million euros extra that Hamilton and Williams intend to contribute, Martin Broughton's list gains in monetary substance. It may be that, given how it has been strengthened in recent weeks, it will not take long to formalize its acquisition of the Blues.

Who else wants to acquire Chelsea?

Final bids were submitted earlier this month for the club, which was put up for sale by owner Roman Abramovich following Russia's invasion of Ukraine before the British government imposed sanctions on the oligarch.

Other contenders to buy the English Premier League club include Todd Boehly, co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Steve Pagliuca, co-owner of the Boston Celtics.

A consortium led by the Ricketts family, owner of the Chicago Cubs, withdrew from the race.

The sale of the club is being overseen by U.S. bank Raine Group.
