The Cityzens have been linked with a number of midfielders this summer, and with Fernandinho looking like leaving the Etihad at the end of the season, they do need reinforcements in that area.
The 23-year-old midfielder has had an indifferent season at Sheffield United. The Blades seem destined for relegation, and Berge has struggled with injury, but even if United go down, Berge may have an immediate route back into the Premier League with a big queue of clubs rumoured to be interested in the Mildfielder.

The report claimed Pep Guardiola wants to push for the Norway international signing in the summer, which will come as ‘good news’ for his former club, KRC Genk, who are entitled to 20% of the fee from any future sale.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, many Man City fans have have been expressing their thoughts and opinions.
He’s a good player who would be a decent backup and replacement for Fernandinho. But how reliable is the source??— Real Talk Manchester City ⚽️ (@RealTalkMCFC) April 5, 2021
I think they have got mixed up. They must’ve heard ‘Norwegian footballer top of Man City’s list’ and then chose the wrong player— 🇧🇼💫 (@mcfctj_) April 5, 2021
Not really. He’d be a good option as a backup.— Mpho (@isaacxo17) April 5, 2021
If Pep wants him he’s surely a top player, lets trust Pep— 💙🐐 (@Bruynetime) April 5, 2021
This would be an amazing signing don’t care what anyone says— AJ (@KZN22_) April 5, 2021
Poaching off the relegation teams, good move 😎— Tony 🇧🇼 (@cityfanburner) April 5, 2021
Brilliant player, would be a great signing remember when we played them and he was immense.— MassivePolarbear (@JoeymanCITY) April 5, 2021
Despite his team sitting at the foot of the table and his injury absence, the mildfielder has scored relatively well in several metrics and has looked like he belongs in the Premier League.
The Dutch international, who is yet to reach his best form with the Blades already plays with maturity beyond his years.
The 6ft 5’ midfielder combines great dribbling abilities with strong passing and physical skill, could step up and become a regular performer at one of the Premier League’s best teams.
It remains to be seen what Berge’s future holds, but if these reports are to be believed, Pep Guardiola would absolutely love to have him at Manchester City.
