According to Wahl, the Harvard-educated Nguyen would relocate to Los Angeles to serve as Chivas' majority owner.
Chivas' previous owners, Mexican entrepreneur Jorge Vergara and his wife Angelica Fuentes, were bought out by the league in February after a disastrous run that saw the team endure four straight losing seasons and three discrimination lawsuits.
Chivas' home attendance has fallen by more than half since 2009. The team is averaging 6,942 at the StubHubCenter this season with three games to play. The worst mark in league history is the 7,460 the former Miami Fusion drew in 2000.
Chivas, last in the Western Conference, is winless in its last 12 matches.
ESPN FC's Jeff Carlisle has reported the sale price for Chivas USA will be around $100 million and the club, which will remain in Southern California, is expected to miss at least one season, possibly two, to allow the new owners time to construct a new soccer-specific stadium and rebrand the team.
Among the discussed locations for a new stadium is Exposition Park, where the Sports Arena now stands. MLS is known to prefer a downtown location for the team's new home.
