Enzo Fernandez: Schmidt rumbles against Chelsea

Enzo Fernandez: Schmidt rumbles against Chelsea

Enzo Fernandez is currently being hunted by top European clubs – to the displeasure of his coach with “disrespectful” efforts.

The transfer world of football continues to rotate even after the World Cup in Qatar, most of the protagonists come from the world champion team.

Enzo Fernandez was named the tournament’s best young player in the desert state. The 21-year-old became Lionel Messi’s noble helper on his way to the world title. So it’s no wonder that the top clubs are already queuing for a transfer of the midfielder this winter.

However, he is still under contract with Benfica Lisbon – and it should stay that way! At least when it comes to his coach: Ex-Leverkusen coach Roger Schmidt.

Schmidt commented on Thursday at a press conference about the ensnared Argentine. “We love him and want him to stay with Benfica”, and yet there are numerous interested parties and offers. That’s not a surprise, after all, Enzo Fernandez showed his own qualities in Qatar with a goal, an assist, and especially his mileage.

Chelsea want Fernandez

However, Schmidt has something to complain about at the club that Enzo Fernandez really wants. Although Schmidt never mentioned the club’s name at the press conference,

it should be clear to everyone involved: it’s Chelsea FC.

The Blues had already brought central defender Benoit Badiashile to London during the winter transfer period, but the king’s transfer was to be different. In addition to goalkeeper Kepa, left-back Cucurella, and captain Azpilicueta, Enzo Fernandez is set to complete the Spanish-speaking squad at the top London club.

The only problem is the fixed transfer fee of 120 million euros.

Since Chelsea are apparently not ready to pay them yet, but the transfer rumors persist, Schmidt seemed upset: “You know that we don’t want to sell this player.” However, if the English capital club is willing to dig deep into its pockets, Benfica would probably give way.
