target of Chelsea in this transfer window, Enzo Fernández is now being speculated as a possible reinforcement of the Barcelonaaccording to Sports world.
In addition to Barça, Real Madrid are also interested in the 22-year-old. Benfica, on the other hand, is determined not to accept any proposal less than 120 million euros (R$ 667.2 million) – the amount of the termination fine – for the Argentine world champion.
Fernández has already voiced his desire to leave the Portuguese club to the board, however the midfielder still has a five-year contract and, as a result, Benfica expects to receive a high price for the athlete who was valued a lot in the World Cup in Qatar.
Chelsea, which seemed to be certain of Enzo Fernández’s destiny, given the player’s desire to transfer to the London club, had its last proposal – of 74 million euros (R$ 411.4 million) – rejected by Ruí Costa, director of Benfica.
With the drop in performance of Sergio Busquets and his possible retirement, Barcelona understands that the steering wheel position is a lack of the team. Thus, Fernández appears as the perfect player to reinforce the Catalan team. However, Barça’s financial situation may make it impossible to transfer the best young player from the last World Cup to the club.
