Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge has said he will be discussing his future with his agent and the Blades after he returns from international duty.
Norway manager Stale Solbakken has questioned whether the 24-year-old will stay at Bramall Lane, with the Yorkshire club remaining in the Championship, and asked about the remarks, Berge hinted that there will be news on his future soon:
“I concentrate on the match and leave it until later. What do I want? I choose not to share it here and now. After the national team gathering, my agents, me and the club get to take care of it. I’ve had a nice development at Sheffield United lately. Then we will see what the future brings.”
The likes of Arsenal and Aston Villa were linked with Berge last summer after United were relegated from the Premier League. It has since been reported, though, that the Blades did not receive a formal bid from any club for the player.
Despite the existence of a £35m release clause, no team deemed the Norwegian international worth the outlay. Whether United will be open to offers below that amount, we shall have to wait and see. They signed Berge for £20m so it will be important to ensure they, at least, make a profit on the midfielder.
