This comes after Sheffield United-focused Twitter account The Bladesman relayed a claim from journalist Alan Nixon, which suggested that there is an Italian side who are interested in the midfielder and hope to be able to bring him in on a loan deal with an option to buy.
This was picked up on by fans of the Blades, who were quick to share their feelings on the latest update…
“No stupid deals that don’t benefit us! Either a full sale or he stays!”
“Ridiculous. Cmon Blades tell them the asking price and if they dont meet tell em to do one.”
“Can’t see us taking an option like that, he’s of more use for us”
“Where’s the logic in this, if we can’t have him we need the money for this summer”
“The problem is the club is stupid enough to agree to something like this.”
“Pay the release clause or don’t bother getting in touch, it’s as easy as that…”
Judging by the reaction to the update, Blades fans would be completely against this deal, with them not being too keen on the idea to allow Berge to leave this season and not gain any money for him.
The 23-year-old faced an injury-plagued campaign, which required him to have surgery that saw the Norwegian miss 21 games of the season, and this may have an effect on a potential move away, with previous reports suggesting the Blades want his release clause of £35 million to be met if he is to move away from Bramall Lane this summer.
Will Berge, who has experience in the Champions League from his time in Belgium with Genk, be sticking around with the Blades in the Championship next season, or will he get a top move?
