Former Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder told TV2 in February that Sander Berge dreams of playing in the Champions League and the Blades have always been a ‘springboard’ for a jump to a bigger club.

Manchester City have been named as a suitor for the midfielder and their interest gets highlighted by Voetbal24.

It’s claimed the Citizens are looking to replace Fernandinho in the summer and the 23-year-old is on top of their target list.

Pep Guardiola wants to push for his signing in the summer and the Etihad club’s interest in the Norway international will come as ‘good news’ for his former club, KRC Genk.

It’s claimed the Belgium side will be entitled to receive 20 percent of the fee from the player’s future sale.

Sheffield United are sitting at the bottom of the table and are 13 points away from safety. They are likely to be relegated and if that happens, the chances of Berge continuing at Bramall Lane are very slim.

If Manchester City or any other club come forward for Berge’s signature, Genk can earn some millions in the process.
