Chelsea, Man Utd open Dembele talks with Fulham

Chelsea and Manchester United are both in talks with Fulham for Moussa Dembele. The Daily Mail says Chelsea and United have stolen a march over their rivals by starting negotiations over the fee and personal terms.

Sir Alex Ferguson has long admired the 24-year-old Belgium playmaker, while Chelsea see him as an ideal long-term replacement for Frank Lampard.

With Lampard about to turn 34, Chelsea are understood to be conducting a review of potential candidates to fill his boots a year or two down the line, and Dembele is seen as the ideal choice.
