The Daily Mail reports that American has created a team dedicated to building the new location.

Plans include a £60k stadium on a 40-acre site at Earls Court.

The development is said to be in the “early stages” and no official planning applications have been submitted.

Buhly will need permission from Chelsea Pitch owners – the shareholder group of the 180-year lease that owns the freehold – to leave Stamford Bridge.

A transfer to the local Earl’s Court, where the exhibition center once stood, was sought under Roman Abramovich.

But the plans were abandoned in 2010 when Hammersmith and Fulham Council scrapped them.

Another option is to rebuild Stamford Bridge one stand at a time.

It will involve rebuilding the existing ground, replacing and upgrading the stands one by one.

The hotel behind the shed end will also be bulldozed.

Buhly has reportedly appointed architect Janet Marie Smith, who has worked on stadium renovations in the US.

Smith’s numerous projects include Oriole Park in Baltimore, Olympic Stadium in Atlanta, Fenway Park for the Boston Red Sox, and Boehly’s Dodger Stadium in LA.

Chelsea are looking to build a new 60,000-capacity ground to meet supporter demand and keep pace with domestic rivals.

Title-chasing Arsenal and Manchester City both have luxurious, modern stadiums.
