Man City eyeing Sheffield Utd midfielder Sander Berge

Manchester City are interested in Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge.

Voetbal24 says City have made Berge their top target to replace Fernandinho this summer.

The 35-year-old Brazilian is set to leave once his contract expires at the end of the campaign.

Any deal for Berge, 23, would reportedly land old club Genk a 20 per cent cut of the fee after he left the club to sign for United in January of last year.

Liverpool are also said to be chasing the 6ft 5in midfielder with Georginio Wijnaldum on his way out.

The Dutchman is wanted by Barcelona when he becomes a free agent in June.

Despite the Blades' imminent drop to the Championship, a deal for Berge would not come cheap.
