The signing of Enzo Fernandez is one of the great objectives of the Chelsea for the present winter market. The 22-year-old Argentinian international from Benfica is the piece that the London team is looking for to round out their squad, but the constant refusals of Benfica they have made his dream impossible up to now.
However, with just over 24 hours to go before the market closes, those responsible for the ‘blue’ table seem to have crazed and would be willing, by various means, to raise their offer until the €120 million of the player’s clause, which in Lisbon seem little predisposed to negotiate.
Chelsea would be willing to pay this amount in full, but in installments, which would continue to collide head-on with the intention of the Benfiquista team, which does not close the exit door for Enzo as long as his buyer pays the 120 ‘kilos’ by just one hit.
Benfica, aware of the Chelsea obsession Because of his player, he seems willing to wait until the last moment of the market, convinced that in London they will not be able to resist the temptation and will end up paying outright.
