The owners of the Chicago Cubs and Ken Griffin, the billionaire hedge fund tycoon, have joined forces to table a blockbuster bid for Chelsea Football Club.

Sky News can exclusively reveal that the Ricketts family, who are long-term admirers of Chelsea, and Mr Griffin have formed an investment group that will lodge a formal offer for last season’s Champions League winners on Friday – the deadline set for bids to be in.

The development, which will be publicly announced on Wednesday, presents a formidable competitor to rival bidders as Roman Abramovich’s 19-year tenure as Chelsea’s owner draws to a conclusion.

Sky Sports News understands Chelsea will not be able to sell tickets for any future home Champions League games this season while Abramovich owns the club and EU sanctions are in force.
