Director Benfica, “Chelsea is driving Enzo crazy” outraged…Why?
Benfica manager Roger Schmidt is furious.
Enzo Fernández (21, Benfica) became a star at the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup. Fernandez showed his presence by leading Argentina’s midfield. He played in all seven matches, including five starts, and scored in the group stage against Mexico.
Enzo is a rear playmaker and boasts excellent game management. He has excellent passes and pressure-free and has strength in ball keeping, leading the midfield stably. As shown in the World Cup, he is also a midfielder with the ability to participate in attacks and score goals from time to time.
After the tournament, the big club’s interest in Enzo surged, and Chelsea was the most active. Chelsea are trying to reorganize the midfield through Enzo in a situation where the future of Jorginho and N’Golo Kante is uncertain. It is a card that can solve Chelsea’s weakness in the midfield this season.
Fernandez is also hoping to move to Chelsea. The process is not neat. Fernandez made a late return to Benfica with a winning party after the World Cup. He also sparked controversy when he announced his move to Chelsea during training. Benfica fans are also angry at Fernandez and want him to be released from the team immediately.
Chelsea tried to invest more than 110 million in Enzo’s buyout of 105 million. But things have changed. Chelsea are beginning to feel burdened by large investments. Britain’s “Telegrev” said on the 3rd that “Chelsea is burdened by putting in a buyout and will negotiate with Benfica.” 안전공원
Coach Schmidt was indignant at Chelsea’s appearance. According to Fabricio Romano, an expert in the European football transfer market, Schmidt said, “I don’t want to sell Fernandez. There is a team that seduces him, but you have to pay a buyout to recruit him. Chelsea are being rude and driving a player crazy. He strongly criticized, saying, “He seemed to pay for the buyout clause, but now he wants to negotiate with me.”
