BREAKING: £186000 Weekly Enzo Fernandez Set To Quit #Chelsea



BREAKING: £186000 Weekly Enzo Fernandez Set To Quit #Chelsea—-Former Chelsea record signing Enzo Fernandez already ‘considers his departure,’ according to Spanish media.

The midfielder arrived at Stamford Bridge off the back of outstanding performances with Benfica and the Argentine national team at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Blues shelled out a then-British record fee to the tune of €121 million to land the 22-year-old, a record that has already been broken twice since, including by Chelsea themselves when they signed Moises Caicedo from Brighton for a fee that could rise to as high as €134m.

Fernandez, however, could not improve the London club’s fortunes last season. Todd Boehly and company splashed more than €600m on new recruits last term and sacked two permanent managers over the course of the season, which was a recipe for disaster. Chelsea finished in an embarrassing 12th place and missed out on European football.

Thus far this season, things haven’t changed much. After four Premier League games, the Blues again sit in that 12th spot with just four points to their name, most recently losing 1-0 to Nottingham Forest at home. Since the start of the Boehly era, Chelsea have spent more than €1 billion on signings, yet they still look like a team lacking quality – and it’s beginning to have repercussions.

Enzo wants out

That is at least according to Spanish outlet Fichajes, which claims that Enzo Fernandez already ‘considers his departure from Chelsea.’ Why? Because his time at the club has thus far not been what he expected when he arrived.

The lack of European football and the overall level of the football is beginning to leave the Argentine disillusioned, claims the outlet. While there may be a kernel of truth in that, it must said that the outlet in question is not particularly reliable.

Moreover, Fernandez is under contract until 2031, which makes a departure anytime soon highly unlikely given that it would take an absolutely astronomical amount of money to prise him away from Chelsea.
