Chelsea plan to leave Stamford Bridge as designers look for new locations

- Designers in charge of the project are said to be looking for new locations

- The Blues have been using Stamford Bridge for the past 114 years and have won many titles there

Premier League giants Chelsea are planning to leave Stamford Bridge as designers are already looking for new locations for the Blues.

Last year, Chelsea started plans towards redevelopment of Stamford Bridge, but the project was later put on hold.

Reason for that decision to suspend the project to rebuild Stamford Bridge was after owner Roman Abramovich was refused a UK visa.

And according to the latest report on UK Sun, designers working on the new Chelsea stadium have started looking at sites away from Stamford Bridge.

The report added that the Blues have held informal talks with designers and that there could be an appetite to restart the project if the costs involved were dramatically slashed.

Stamford Bridge have been Chelsea's home for the past 114 years and any plan to leave would need the support of fans' group the Chelsea Pitch Owners.

They want to build a new 60,000 capacity ground to satisfy supporter demand and keep up with the rivals commercially.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Chelsea suffered a setback after their appeal against FIFA's two-window transfer ban from signing players was rejected by the world football governing body.

According to the report, the only reprieve for Chelsea from FIFA is that they can sign under-16 players within the UK during the suspension period.
