John Terry has emerged as part of a group examining the possibility of purchasing an ownership stake in Chelsea, with co-controlling owner Todd Boehly open to additional investment. Several potential investors in Chelsea, some of whom had shown interest in Manchester United, include Terry's group, though it is unclear whether they can gather enough money.

Terry had previously considered investing in Chelsea and was a member of the 'True Blue' consortium that saw Boehly and Clearlake Capital acquire the team from Roman Abramovich. Currently, Chelsea football club ownership is with Clearlake, who owns just over 60 per cent of the club, with the remaining equity divided between Boehly, Hansjorg Wyss, and Mark Walter.

John and his associates are considering submitting a bid for a 10% stake with fan funding via the online technology company PrimaryBid, whose co-founder and CEO Anand Sambasivan is a season ticket holder at Chelsea. PrimaryBid, registered with the Financial Conduct Authority, is an online investing platform, that allows sizable groups of investors to purchase stocks in corporations.

In addition to looking into the potential of investing in Chelsea, Terry has spoken with one of the Saudi Arabian club Al-Shabab's presidential candidates about a post in the UK where he would assist with player recruiting. However, those discussions have not yet advanced. In addition to working with Chelsea's academy, Terry has started a one-man tour to answer questions from fans and discuss his time with the Blues, Aston Villa, and England.
