It was a dramatic farewell to the Boleyn Ground last night as West Ham United gave their famous old home a fitting send off with a scintillating 3-2 win over Manchester United.
We’ve had some tearful Hammers in this evening, though they are no doubt excited about their seismic move to the Olympic Stadium next season as they look to continue their upward trajectory.
However, following reports from the Daily Mail, London rivals Chelsea could also be set for a stay in Stratford.
It is claimed that the Blues have entered discussions with the London Legacy Development in regards to a potential relocation there should their negotiations to move to Wembley break down.
While the most iconic stadium in English football is understood to remain their first-choice as a temporary home while Stamford Bridge is redeveloped, they have reportedly lined up a move to the East End should that fall flat.
Any deal to move there would cost the Blues far more than the deal the Irons are getting to relocate.
It was revealed that the East London outfit will pay just £2.5m year in order to move, though Chelsea would be charged far more than the provisional £20m per season they have agreed with the FA to switch to the home of English football.
