Chelsea are said to have made a £112million offer for Enzo Fernandez to Benfica.

The format is similar to Atletico Madrid’s deal to buy Benfica’s Joao Felix in 2019.

Benfica have reiterated they want to keep Fernandez but the 21-year-old, who returned to Argentina at the weekend, is desperate to make the move.
Further negotiations will take place later today when the Portuguese side decide whether to accept the structure of Chelsea’s offer.
The deal would make world champions Fernandez the most expensive signing in Premier League history.
