TA: Fulham wanted to sign Sheffield United midfielder Berg, but Chelsea’s loan offer in the summer window last year was rejected

January 30 News According to The Athletic UK Sheffield United and team reporter Richard Sutcliffe
Fulham are one of several Premier League clubs interested in Sheffield United’s all-time signing Sander Berg, with Marco Silva’s side thought to be interested in the 24-year-old
The midfielders are most interested.

The Big Swords’ cash flow problems – with the club under a transfer embargo for the past 12 days after failing to pay an installment of a previous signing fee – mean serious offers will have to be heard.

What TA can also reveal is that the report of the Sheffield Star last summer window was correct. Chelsea did want to sign Berg, but the loan offer was rejected by the Championship club.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is also a big fan of the player, and Sheffield hope to recoup most of the fee paid to Genk in January 2020 if Berg is sold.
