Chelsea are pushing for the signing of World Cup star Enzo Fernandez again.
The British’Guardian’ said on the 23rd (Korean time), “Chelsea is making a new plan after the contract for Fernandes was not concluded before. According to inside sources, negotiations are set to resume this week.”
Fernandez played his best performance at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Despite his 2001 birth year, he has been an excellent supporter for Argentina’s Lionel Messi. Thanks to his performance, Messi was able to play the game more leisurely, and made an achievement to win the championship.
FIFA also acknowledged his performance. After the World Cup, Fernandez won the ‘Young Player Award’ given to the tournament’s best prospect. At that time, Fernandez was on the podium with Messi, who received the Golden Ball, Kylian Mbappe, who received the Golden Boot, and Emiliano Martinez, who received the Golden Gloves.
Big clubs were not alone in admiring Fernandez’ performance. Manchester United, Liverpool and Newcastle United, including Chelsea of the English Premier League (EPL), also jumped into the scout. Among them, Chelsea had to deposit 105 million pounds (approximately 160.6 billion won), the amount of Fernandez’s buyout, right away.
The transfer did not happen because Benfica stubbornly rejected the transfer of Fernandez.
Chelsea changed their target for a while. Although he contacted Brighton’s Moises Caicedo, negotiations broke down due to the high transfer fee of 55 million pounds (approximately 83.8 billion won).
After giving up Caicedo, Chelsea tries to contact Fernandez again. Manager Graham Porter wants a player who can definitely start in midfield. Even if more transfer fees occur, they did not give up on Fernandez, who played a perfect role in the World Cup. 토토사이트
