West London club considers move.
Chelsea are exploring the possibility of building a new 55-60,000-seater stadium at Battersea Power Station.
The club have made no decision to leave Stamford Bridge and still needs to buy back the freehold of the famous ground before they can move anywhere.
They are acting to make sure they do not miss out on the site should they choose to move from Stamford Bridge.
A Chelsea spokesman said: “In the past, we’ve talked to various people with interests in Battersea Power Station, but we haven’t had any substantive discussions with anyone regarding that site for several months.
“However, in light of current developments, we now think it prudent to look again at the feasibility and potential for the BPS site to be developed for a football stadium.
“We have made no decision to leave Stamford Bridge, and we continue to discuss with the local council any economically viable options to expand the the Bridge, but we will continue to investigate various options close to Stamford Bridge.”

Talk of a Chelsea move away from Stamford Bridge is definitely gathering pace and perhaps relocating to Battersea would be a viable option. The distance between the Blues current home and the famous power station is just over 3 miles but one wonders if such a move would involve the tearing down of the famous building?
