It is news that Chelsea have started negotiations with Enzo Fernandez again .
Fernandez is a star born at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Fernandez, who participated in the World Cup in Qatar as a member of the Argentine national team, played an outstanding role in the midfield based on his vigorous activity, helping Argentina to the final and winning the World Cup for the first time in 36 years. Recognizing Fernandez’s performance, FIFA presented Fernandez with the Young Player Award for the best young player of the tournament at an awards ceremony held after the tournament.
Like many World Cup stars, Fernandes has attracted interest from a number of clubs. The most active team among them was Chelsea. Chelsea were looking for young and talented midfielders to replace N’Golo Kante and Jorginho. Money didn’t matter. European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano revealed that Chelsea had offered Benfica 85 million euros (approximately 114.1 billion won) to sign Fernandes. However, Benfica were in a position that they would not release the player unless Chelsea paid the amount of Fernandes’ buyout. 안전놀이터
Chelsea couldn’t convince Benfica, but they shook the player’s heart. Despite Benfica not accepting the offer from Chelsea, Fernandes had already completed personal negotiations with Chelsea. Controversy arose when Fernandes did not appear at Benfica’s training ground after news broke that he had ended personal negotiations with Chelsea.
This made director Roger Schmidt explode. Schmidt said there were no further negotiations, and made it clear that Fernandez would stay. He also criticized Chelsea in public, saying Chelsea’s behavior was disrespectful. As such, it seemed difficult for Chelsea to negotiate with Fernandez again, at least within the winter transfer window.
Breaking expectations, news broke that negotiations had resumed. “Chelsea have resumed negotiations with Benfica to sign Fernandes,” said Matt Law, a reporter for the British Telegraph and well-versed in Chelsea news. “They are waiting to see if they can sign him in 48 hours. If Chelsea decide it is too late to sign Fernandes, they will consider signing him in the summer transfer window.”
