Jamie Reuben, the son of billionaire property investor David Reuben, has been considering an offer for Chelsea Football Club, the storied London franchise put up for sale by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, according to people familiar with the matter.

Reuben has been holding early talks about making a potential bid on a personal basis and could tap his family’s expansive wealth to help fund a deal, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the deliberations are private.
