Fabrizio Romano drops major Fernandez update “Calls the pricing madness”; What he said

Fabrizio Romano drops major Enzo Fernandez transfer update “Calls the pricing madness”; Here is what he said in details.


The Blues have been pursuing the 22-year-old throughout January following his impressive performances at the World Cup in Qatar.

He was handed FIFA’s Young Player of the Tournament award, and is seen as the perfect addition to Chelsea’s midfield.


The West London club have splashed the cash this month, paying £89million for Mykhailo Mudryk, £35 million for Benoit Badashile, and £29 million for Noni Madueke.

However, they have their eyes on one more deal, with Todd Boehly keen to lure Fernandez to Stamford Bridge. Meanwhile, manager Graham Potter is said to ‘fully back’ the pursuit.

Benfica called off talks with Chelsea earlier this month due to the installments in which the Blues wanted to pay for the player, and it was thought that they had missed their chance.

The Telegraph claimed earlier on Monday that the Blues had offered £105 million to sign the midfielder, with the current British record held by Jack Grealish’s £100 million move from Aston Villa to Manchester City in 2021.

Talks continued throughout the night and journalist Fabrizio Romano has a fresh update for fans.

“Chelsea wanted breakthrough in the night but nothing yet. Negotiations will continue in the morning.

“#DeadlineDay madness.”

The Times journalist Duncan Castles, meanwhile, has claimed that Fernandez did not train with Benfica on Monday following reports of a new bid in an attempt to pressure the club into accepting Chelsea’s offer.
