Chelsea and Spurs set for £55m Wembley groundshare

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur could be set for a sensational ground share at Wembley, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The London clubs are both due to build new stadiums in the near future, and the FA could set to capitalise by agreeing a £55m deal that would see the national stadium used a temporary home.

The Blues are to leave Stamford Bridge, but need at least three season while their new £500m 60,000 seat home while Spurs need one or two years while their new multi-purpose residence is under construction.

The Wembley board are said to be under pressure to allow a club to use the stadium, as the FA look to boost revenues.

Reports suggest the FA could expect to earn £11m a season by allowing a club to reside there temporarily, meaning up to £55m could come their way.

Spurs are said to be keen on the idea, though they are considering the Olympic Stadium as Milton Keynes as alternatives.

The White Hart Lane club have confirmed they intend to begin the 2018-19 season in a new 61,000 seater home and will share housing duties with NFL teams when they play on these shores.
