Chelsea in talks with Enzo Fernandez, with big deal u-turn: report


Chelsea are reportedly preparing to re-enter negotiations over a move for Benfica and Argentina star Enzo Fernandez, after talks broke down earlier this month.

The Blues failed in their previous bid to sign the World Cup-winning playmaker, with Benfica rejecting their attempt to pay less than his release clause.

According to the Guardian (opens in new tab), that release clause is set at £106m – and Chelsea intend to try again to bring Fernandez to Stamford Bridge.

It’s already been a busy January transfer window for the Blues, who have made six signings at a combined cost of well over £200m – including a loan fee worth almost £10m for Joao Felix.
