‘World Cup Star’ Enzo Fernandez hinted at his future through the goal ceremony.
Fernandez played his best performance at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Despite his 2001 birth year, he has been an excellent supporter for Argentina’s Lionel Messi. Thanks to his performance, Messi was able to play the game more leisurely, and made an achievement to win the championship.
FIFA also acknowledged his performance. After the World Cup, Fernandez won the ‘Young Player Award’ given to the tournament’s best prospect. At that time, Fernandez was on the podium with Messi, who received the Golden Ball, Kylian Mbappe, who received the Golden Boot, and Emiliano Martinez, who received the Golden Gloves. Big clubs were not alone in admiring Fernandez’ performance.
In this situation, Fernandez revealed his firm belief in his team. Fernandez helped the team win 2-0 in the Portuguese Cup round of 16 game against Barzim on the 11th (Korean time). On this day, Fernandez presented a special ceremony by scoring the team’s second goal in the 33rd minute of the second half.
It was a message to supporters. Fernandez, who was strongly linked to Chelsea in the English Premier League (EPL) during the transfer window this winter, finally announced his stay. After the goal, he pointed to the Benfica emblem and once again pointed to the ground, indicating that the team would stay. In football, the above ceremony is conveyed in order to make sure of one’s future when there is a transfer rumor. 먹튀검증
If the transfer had happened, a huge record would have been made. Chelsea, who were the most active in signing Fernandes, offered Benfica an amount that exceeded Fernandes’ buyout clause. Fernandes’ release clause is £150m (approximately 160.6 billion won), but Chelsea offered a transfer fee of 130 million euros (approximately 175.7 billion won), which is higher than other teams to get ahead in the scouting battle.
Fernandes has been positive about joining Chelsea. In the transfer market last summer, when Jack Grealish moved to Manchester City, it was about £15 million (about 22.9 billion won) higher than the EPL’s highest transfer fee of £100 million (about 153 billion won).
