EXPOSED: Here is an insider story of why Chelsea broke transfer record for Enzo Fernandez.
You might be wondering why Chelsea has broken the transfer record for the EPL and signed Enzo Fernandez at such a price well you are about to find out why.
As Per Matt Law, who has a piece up today on the workings of the deal. He claims that Chelsea forced the £106m deal through in January because they knew by the summer, Real Madrid and other top sides were going to be ready to compete with them for his signing.
In a way that’s obvious, but it’s also interesting to hear the details of a chase which lasted almost precisely from the first day of January until the last.
Law writes that Chelsea had understood that Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and Madrid were all going to do their best to sign the World Cup winner, and they knew they could potentially save money by cutting out a bidding war.
It has also allowed them to bring their man in 6 months early – not that it’s helped results much. Enzo has yet to experience a win in Blue.
