Chelsea, United battle it out for Dembele
The two teams have opened talks over a 10 million pound move for Fulham's attacking midfielder. Dembele refused to renew his contract which has 12 months remaining.
Chelsea see him as an ideal long-term replacement for Frank Lampard. The European champions already signed Dembele's international teammate Eden Hazard for 32 million pounds earlier this week from French club Lille.
If Dembele does agree to sign with the Londoners, he will be the fifth Belgian recruit for the club with Hazard, Romelu Lukaku, Thibaut Courtois and Kevin de Bruyne also in the side.
United though are also in the running with manager Sir Alex Ferguson being a long admirer of the 24-year-old Belgium playmaker.

More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
