It was confirmed in March 2020 that the club's planning permission to redevelop Stamford Bridge had expired. But the main concern surrounding knocking down Stamford Bridge to build a new one for current owners would be finding a temporary ground.
The report indicates the entire project would take at least five years to complete, meaning Chelsea would need another ground suitable to house their fans for a period of time. Tottenham used Wembley while their new stadium was being built, but the prospect of Chelsea following suit is said to be a 'terrifying prospect'.
Groundsharing with Fulham - the closest Premier League ground to Stamford Bridge - is also named as a possibility, but Craven Cottage has almost half the capacity of Chelsea's current stadium.
