Chelsea is planning major renovations to Stamford Bridge which would see the Blues in need of an alternate home for at least three seasons. With construction set to begin in 2017, Chelsea submitted a bid reported to be worth more than $20 million per year to play at Wembley.

However, Tottenham has now matched Chelsea’s offer, bringing up the possibility that the two clubs share Wembley as their home for one year.

Tottenham is in the process of building a completely new stadium, which is scheduled to open in 2018. Spurs will stay at White Hart Lane until 2017, but need to find a temporary ground for one season.

Spurs have also looked into a possible move to Stadium mk, the home of Championship side MK Dons. However, Stadium mk is more than 50 miles north of Tottenham and has a capacity of 30,500 compared to Wembley’s 90,000.
