Bids from the Ricketts family, owners of Major League Baseball franchise the Chicago Cubs, and Stephen Pagliuca, co-owner of NBA basketball team the Boston Celtics, are the latest to have made the shortlist of potential new owners of English Premier League football club Chelsea, according to multiple reports.
