?Chelsea have submitted a request to their local council to help navigate a roadblock that threatens to derail the £1billion redevelopment of Stamford Bridge.
The Premier League champions are facing a high-court injunction from the owners of two nearby properties, who say the planned construction works on the proposed 60,000 seater stadium would block out their sunlight.
According to the ?Daily Mail, the Blues have requested that Hammersmith and Fulham council look to enforce compulsory purchase powers to bypass the issue, or the club face the real possibility of the redevelopment being stopped.
?Chelsea have told the council they cannot afford to begin development work while there remains a risk that the injunction proceedings could succeed.
The Blues are believed to be looking at 2024 to move back in, with four years at a yet to be undecided temporary home beginning in two seasons time.
