Just a few days ago, we covered an article regarding Napoli’s interest in Sander Berge.
Of all the Sheffield United players, he is potentially the most valuable asset at their disposal, and with the Serie A side courting him and ready to offer him top flight football, a sale could be on the cards.
A loan, however, is out of the question, which the Blades have made very clear to Cristiano Giuntoli, Napoli’s director of football, but another type of deal could be feasible.
That’s what Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting on Thursday, claiming the English club ‘need to raise cash and are demanding no less than €8-10m to sell the Norwegian international’.
The fee reported is considerably smaller to what was reported a few days ago (€15m), which is a bit strange, but if a deal could be done at that amount, Napoli would bite.
It’s stated ‘the sacrifice will probably be made for the midfielder’, especially once the sales of Gennaro Tutino to Parma and Sebastiano Luperto to Empoli are completed, which are expected to bring in around €7m.
We’ll have to wait and see for more on this, because €8-10m seems awfully low for a player who started Sheffield United’s first game of the season, and who cost £20.7m from KRC Genk in the first place.
