Both Chelsea and Tottenham are looking to revamp their stadium, with a ground share at Wembley looking to become a reality, according to The
White Heart Lane and Stamford Bridge are set for some changes. Therefore, the Spurs and the Blues have been looking out for alternatives during the proceedings.
Chelsea looked to be set on a three season deal (2017-2020) at Wembley worth £15 million per season, but are now facing competition from Tottenham.
The Blues want an exclusive use of the national stadium but are now potentially facing a ground share with their Premier League rivals, as Tottenham offered a similar kind of deal and are open to sharing.
The Spurs have an advantage at the moment, as their schedule is set. They’ve already started preparations for a 61,000-seater White Hart Lane and will need to move away for the duration of the 2017-18 season only, when work steps up. They also have an alternative: a move to Stadium mk in Milton Keynes.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are a couple of steps away from finalising their schedule. They only submitted a planning application last month.
