The Sander Berge to Arsenal story continues to drag on it seems, with the Blades still yet to see any money on the table from the Premier League club.
We’ve covered interest in Berge more than once on this site. It’s believed United want around £35m for the Norwegian, who only arrived in January 2020 for around £22m.
Arsenal are said to be courting Berge as they look to strengthen their midfield ranks this summer. However, he is one of a number of players Mikel Arteta is keen on for that area.
Further, reports today also suggest the Gunners want Aaron Ramsdale from United. A £20m bid is being readied, although that will fall below United’s valuation of the young stopper.
And in regards to Berge, Yorkshire Live have reported that no official bid has been received as yet for the midfielder. That info is in contrast to reports from France a month ago, that suggested Arsenal had bid £17m for Berge.
It very much remains to be seen if Berge will stay put. The Blades are, to their credit, demanding big money.
The Norwegian star is working his way back to fitness after a troubled ending to the campaign. Indeed, he took to Instagram a week or so back to demonstrate the work he is putting in off the pitch.
