Property mogul Nick Candy took aim at rival Chelsea auctioneer Jonathan Goldstein as Three gave an update on their ongoing sponsorship issues with the club

Real estate mogul Nick Candy has targeted one of his rival bidders as he hopes to buy Chelsea from Roman Abramovich.
Chelsea owner Abramovich put the club up for sale after Russia invaded Ukraine. He has now been sanctioned by the UK government, leaving the club in crisis.
The sanctions mean the Blues have to operate on a reduced budget and are unable to buy or sell players, negotiate new contracts or sell any merchandise. And Candy has now explained why he won’t team up to form a super corporation with one of his rival bids for the club.
It comes as Ba puts more pressure on Chelsea to remove their logo from the Blues’ jerseys. And Chelsea is participating Champions League quarterfinals after beating Lille more than two turns.

Three do shirt needs
Chelsea sponsor Three have made new calls to have their logo removed from the club’s jerseys.
Three have suspended their contracts with the Blues after Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK government. But the sanctions mean that the Stamford Bridge side have to operate under a very strict budget and as a result, the removal of the sponsorship has yet to be done.
And the telecom company has now released a statement calling for the situation to be resolved “as soon as possible”.
Contractors turn on each other
Nick Candy insists he will not cooperate with Jonathan Goldstein to form a super corporation to buy Chelsea for one simple reason.
The British property mogul is one of the parties interested in buying the club from Roman Abramovich but will face strong competition to become the club’s next owner. Another party in the framework is a consortium consisting of a London-based real estate investor Jonathan GoldsteinAmerican tycoon Todd Boehly and Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss.
But Candy won’t join the group – and it’s all because of Goldstein.
Lille said point
Chelsea reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League after beating Lille 2-1 on Wednesday night.
The Blues overcame stubborn opponents to win 4-1 on aggregate after being penalized by Burak Yilmaz in the first half. But goals from Christian Pulisic and Cesar Azpilicueta helped Chelsea overturn the deficit to qualify for the next round.
It’s a game full of talking points, and Mirror Football covered all the big moments.
