Chelsea closing in on Belgian double raid for Lukaku, De Bruyne

Chelsea are edging closer to a Belgian double deal for Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne.

Anderlecht have confirmed for the first time they are in talks with the Blues over striker Lukaku, 18.

And the swoop could involve midfielder De Bruyne, 19, joining from Genk then being farmed back out to the Brussels club.

Anderlecht general manager Herman van Holsbeeck said: "There is still a long way to go. We are indeed negotiating with Chelsea, but there are other clubs we are talking to."
