The Player Who Arrived For A Manchester United Medical Was A Reserve Goalkeeper
The player who arrived at Carrington for a Manchester United medical was a reserve goalkeeper, not Sander Berge.
Reports had claimed Berge arrived at Carrington to undergo a medical ahead of completing a transfer to United, but the player who arrived was actually a 15-year-old stopper.
According to MEN and Mail, a goalkeeper arrived at Carrington this morning not the Norwegian midfielder.

False alarm. NOT Sander Berge, according to United..
A 15-year-old goalkeeper instead.

Needless to say, the Carrington mix-up sent social media into overdrive.
We got a player nobody has ever heard of trending because he looks a bit like a reserve keeper spotted in a car near Carrington.- Don't Be Like Joey (@joeythehoss) January 28, 2020

"Yeah I'm done with United," one social media user wrote.
A second tweeted: "I enjoyed that 5 minutes."
A third tweeted: "Solskjaer tomorrow in his pre-match interview: 'It's like a new signing.'"
A fourth added: "Can we just skip the next few days. This transfer talk is all over the place."
Another joked: "I just want this club to liquidate ASAP."
Berge has been the subject of interest from Sheffield United. He rejected a bid from The Blades last summer with Chris Wilder renewing their pursuit of the 21-year-old this month.
