Chelsea and West Ham could be involved in talks over sharing the London Stadium, the current home to the East-London side.
According to Football.London, the venue’s operators LS185 would consider occupying the formerly known Olympic Stadium during Stamford Bridge’s redevelopment.
The Blues are looking into moving to a temporary home during the 2019-20 season, as the club are likely to face a four-year departure away from the Bridge.
Due to Shahid Khan, owner of Fulham FC and NFL franchise Jacksonville Jaguars, having firm interest in buying Wembley Stadium, there have been doubts over whether Chelsea could move to England’s national football stadium.
However, Khan revealed that it wouldn’t be a problem for Chelsea to use the stadium for the required period of time but insisted that the Blues must pay for its use, just like Tottenham Hotspur have done this season.
Football.London also reports that a survey from the Chelsea Supporters Trust showed that 42% of the club’s supporters involved would less likely go to matches if the club temporarily moved to the London Stadium.
