Enzo Fernández is worth €120 million
Real Madrid and Liverpool are among the clubs linked with the World Cup winner; Benfica will not negotiate.
Enzo Fernández is a World Cup winner. The Argentine star was a substitute in the Albiceleste’s debut against Saudi Arabia, but took advantage of the minutes in that match become one of the pillars of the world title conquest. His great performance in Qatar earned him the Best Young Player award and has caused his price to skyrocket. Against Mexico he scored the second goal in a 2-0 win.
The Argentine midfielder arrived at Benfica this season and signed a contract until 2027, with the club paying €18 million for 75% of his rights. That transfer figure remains tiny compared to the amounts that are now being considered for the player. In fact, Benfica is not willing to negotiate his departure this winter and if any team wants to take him next month, they will have to pay the €120 million of his buyout clause.
Enzo Fernández is liked by Liverpool and for weeks he has been linked with a move to Anfield. In fact, in Argentina it was ensured before the World Cup that the midfielder would end up at Anfield this winter. However, his revaluation in Qatar has radically complicated this situation. But Liverpool are not the only team with which he is linked. Real Madrid, according to the Portuguese journalist Pedro Sepúlveda, is another of the clubs that have Enzo Fernández on their radar.
How much is Enzo’s release clause?
Benfica does not seem to be bluffing in its refusal to negotiate and, according to sources close to the Lisbon club, they is not going to let Enzo leave for less than the release clause in this transfer window: €120 million. However, in summer the situation seems totally different and that’s where the Lisbon club could sit down to discuss a possible transfer of the Argentine midfielder.
