Sheffield United are willing to let midfielder Sander Berge leave the club for €26m this summer, with Arsenal and Tottenham showing interest in him.
That’s according to Jeunes Footeux, who say the Norwegian is ‘not expected to last long’ at the club once they are relegated from the Premier League.
Sheffield United currently sit bottom of the table with just 14 points after 28 games, a tally that means they are 12 points from safety at this moment in time.
Barring a miracle, it is expected they will return to the Championship next season, and the club are already making plans so that they can hit the ground running.
Reports in England have stated that while they will look to hold onto their first-team stars come the summer, big offers for players will have to be accepted if they arrive.
One such player is record signing Berge, and according to Jeunes Footeux, both Arsenal and Tottenham are ‘interested in signing’ the midfielder.
They believe Berge is a ‘profile’ that they both ‘clearly lack’ and thus are looking at a possible move in the summer transfer window, should Sheffield United be relegated as expected.
It’s explained that the Blades are ‘ready’ to let Berge go in a €26m deal, and that situation has put Arsenal and Tottenham ‘on alert’ and eyeing a potential deal.
Whether they would be willing to pay Sheffield United’s asking price isn’t mentioned; indeed, the only information provided is that the two clubs are interested.
That means we’ll have to take this rumour with a pinch of salt at this moment in time as the source is not the greatest, and there’s little evidence or information to solidify their claims.
Still, if you happen to see this rumour in the coming days, you know where it came from first.
