Enzo Fernandez has made his own fortune with extraordinary talent. And Benfica are looking to take their financial fortunes even higher by capitalizing on Fernandez’s talents. In May of last year, Benfica brought the young talented footballer from River Plate to the team for a low cost.
Some of the superpowers of England are now fighting to get Fernandez . Realizing the opportunity, the Portuguese club Benfica is increasing his price at will. Things started to change after Fernandez became the best young player at the World Cup in Qatar.
Fernandez’s release clause of Tk 120 million had been fixed by Benfica. At the time, Chelsea offered the Portuguese club a hefty sum to sign Fernandez in early January. But Benfica rejected that offer. However, after seeing the interest of big clubs around him, they increased the price of Fernandez to 120 million Euro . But they want to pay the money by installment.
Who knows whether anyone will buy Fernandez at such a price, but Chelsea has already offered Benfica 120 million Euro , British daily Telegraph reported. Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, a reliable source of the transfer market, said that Benfica is in talks with Chelsea about this offer. It goes without saying that that discussion means bargaining.
In the end, if Chelsea gets Fernandez for 120 million Euro, then England’s transfer fee record will be rewritten. The current transfer fee record in English football is now held by Jack Grealish. In 2021, Manchester City paid 100 million to bring this English Winger from Aston Villa to the team.
Chelsea has been spending a lot this January under the new owner . It will be interesting to see if Chelsea can manage to past their bad forms with those new signings.
