Late hours of yesterday, Benfica President Rui Costa agreed with Chelsea FC on Enzo Fernandez’s terms and was ready to accept Chelsea’s bid agreement.
Recall that the West London club offered a whopping £114m to Benfica in the race of securing the Argentina international and one-time World Cup winner.
Sports journalist who shared the update on Enzo Fernandez’s deal with Chelsea said:
“Benfica President Rui Costa has reportedly ‘agreed to sell Enzo Fernandez’ to Chelsea”.
