Manchester City have joined the race to sign Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge, according to reports in the Belgian media.
Manager Pep Guardiola is keen to find a suitable replacement for Fernandinho, who is likely to leave the Etihad Stadium when his contract expires in the summer.
Berge has been identified as a possible successor for the Brazilian, although the Norwegian international reportedly does have plenty of other suitors in the Premier League.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Aston Villa are all said to be keeping tabs on the 23-year-old, but the Blades aren’t expected to sell him on the cheap, even though they are destined for relegation.
Berge’s former club Racing Genk are believed to have a 20% sell-on clause on the Norwegian, which will likely lead United to push up their asking price. They signed him for £22m in January 2020 but a fee between £30m and £40m may well be demanded for the player.
