Despite interest from Manchester City, Barcelona, and Real Madrid, Argentina’s World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez is prioritizing a move to Premier League juggernaut Liverpool, according to O Jogo
Benfica took a chance and achieved something that no one else could have done six months ago. They used the £18 million release clause in Enzo Fernandez’s River Plate contract to their advantage.
Even the most ardent Benfica fan could not have guessed how far Enzo would come in such a short amount of time.
On Sunday night at Qatar’s Lusail Stadium, the 21-year-old playmaker smiled for photos while wearing a World Cup winner’s medal around his neck, the Young Player of the Tournament award in one hand, and the Jules Rimet in the other.
Meanwhile, his asking price has grown from £18 million to almost £100 million, with the Portuguese giants refusing to allow Enzo leave for less than his hefty release clause.
LIVERPOOL LEAD THE CHASE TO SIGN WORLD CUP WINNER ENZO FERNANDEZ FROM ARGENTINA.
The Merseyside giants have already finalised terms with Enzo’s club, according to La Capital. O Jogo has now provided evidence to back up his assertion. Liverpool will also match any bid from rival suitors such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Manchester United.
Liverpool appears to be given ‘priority’ by Enzo.
Enzo has stated his intention to become the most expensive signing in the history of one of Europe’s most legendary football clubs. And, as his great performances in the Qatar World Cup demonstrated, he is not a man who succumbs to pressure.
Liverpool also has a solid working relationship with Benfica. Last August, they agreed to a £64 million deal for Darwin Nunez.
“He has a bright future,” Argentina captain Lionel Messi said of Fernandez, who started the final victory over France on Sunday. “Enzo is an exceptional genius.” He emanates charisma and makes spectacular passes. Spectacular.”
His playing ability is out of this world. “At only 21 years old,” says Jose Peseiro, former Real Madrid coach.
“The best player with whom I worked at Real Madrid was Zinedine Zidane.” Of course, I don’t want to make comparisons. But I’m referring to Enzo’s fleeting and amazing vision, which makes me think of Zidane.
“What exactly is Enzo’s age?” Is he 21?”That’s either a lie or a brilliant stroke of genius!”
£35.6m Chelsea’s agents come in England to bargain with Liverpool.
Croatian midfielder joined Chelsea on loan from Real Madrid and has since established himself as a key element of the Blues’ midfield. Kovacic is one of the Premier League’s greatest midfielders, and the 28-year-old is in high demand.
In the summer of 2019, CFC recruited Kovacic on a permanent basis, and he has been a crucial player under managers Maurizio Sarri, Frank Lampard, and Thomas Tuchel. This season, Kovacic has been hampered by niggles, but he is now a mainstay in the midfield alongside Enzo Fernandez.
Kovacic’s current Chelsea deal is slated to expire in the next 12 months, and contract extension talks have stalled. Chelsea’s competitors and some of the Premier League’s top six clubs are watching the issue closely because his future is not bound to the club and he has one year left on his contract.
Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic could leave in the summer.
Kovacic’s representatives, according to 90min, have travelled to England to speak with officials from Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United. If a new deal is not signed quickly, CFC is prepared to sell the Croatian.
His entourage will discuss the contract with Chelsea, but meetings with other big Premier League teams have already been set. Manchester City, Liverpool, and Manchester United have all indicated interest in the 28-year-old midfielder and are keeping eyes on him.
Liverpool is currently revamping their midfield. They’re also keeping an eye on Mason Mount, whose contract talks have come to a halt. Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, has long admired Kovacic’s quality, thus his availability will inevitably entice the club to enter the competition.
As they continue to explore midfield options, CFC will not be scared to spend significant money in the summer transfer window. Declan Rice has long been a Blues target, and Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia has aroused the Blues’ interest with his impressive performances in a Southampton shirt. Borussia Monchengladbach’s Manu Kone has also been identified as a transfer target, and if Chelsea signs any of the aforementioned targets, trading Kovacic will assist fund the deal.
Kovacic recently spoke with AC Milan’s management and offered himself for the summer. If a new contract is not agreed upon, the former Real Madrid player will almost certainly be sold, with clubs such as Liverpool, Manchester United, and Manchester City willing to pay a premium.
