Chelsea close to huge new sponsor announcement as fans praise Todd Boehly for 'making rivals jealous' | The Sun

CHELSEA are nearing a new shirt sponsorship deal, according to reports.

The Blues' current £40m-a-season deal with Three is set to expire at the end of the season.

Todd Boehly and Co are set to negotiate a deal with a new sponsor, and have received plenty of interest despite Chelsea's awful season.

According to Sky News, German insurance giants Allianz are in talks with the Blues over striking a deal.

Allianz are said to be one of a number of companies looking to replace Three on Chelsea shirts.

Fans will recognise Allianz as title sponsors of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Minnesota United's respective stadiums.

Blues chiefs have been confident in their abilities to negotiate a more lucrative deal than the £40m previously agreed with Three.

But their dreadful campaign is likely to see the sum decrease from what it could have been had they secured a Champions League place.

Manchester United and Newcastle, both likely to finish in the top four, are also looking for new shirt sponsors.

Despite the chaos surrounding Chelsea, some fans bullishly praised Boehly amid Allianz's interest.
