Ken Griffin is largely seen as the main financial muscle behind The Ricketts Group’s attempts to buy Chelsea Football Club from Roman Abramovich.

The Daily Mirror report that the consortium has incredible financial clout — its aggregate capital is in excess of £50bn — and is presenting an all- equity, debt-free bid.

Griffin is one of the richest men in the United States with, according to Forbes magazine (cited by The Mirror), a fortune in excess of £20billion.

The Billionaire has been speaking this weekend ahead of the deadline to get final offers and proposals on the table to Raine Group before the decision making process commences.

It looks like this consortium in particular, have built up an incredible financial backing. But the fact remains for many reasons, they are still a very unpopular group amongst large parts of the Chelsea fanbase who have consistently voiced their discontent about them, or at least members of the group. But Griffin is defiant and says he is there to win and make a competitive team.

“I am thrilled to come together with my long- time friends and partners, the Ricketts Family and Dan Gilbert, who have built legendary championship teams,” said Ken Griffin.

“All of us love to compete and, even more, we love to win. Our group will work closely together to put the most competitive team on the pitch every year.

 If selected, we will validate the trust placed in us to continue Chelsea’s winning tradition while delivering a terrific game day experience for the fans.”
