A consortium led by LA Dodgers owner Todd Boehly is understood to be the preferred bidder for Chelsea.

“We’ve been rejected out of hand,” Ineos director Tom Crotty told Bloomberg on Wednesday.

The Premier League club was put up for sale before owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned for his alleged links to Russian president Vladimir Putin following the invasion of Ukraine.
