Enzo Fernandez transfer rumours: is the Argentine leaving Chelsea?

The Qatar 2022 World Cup glory marked a historic moment for Argentina, opening up opportunities for young stars such as Enzo Fernandez. He made his dream move to Chelsea in the Premier League for a world-record fee last year in January.

Enzo impressed everyone at the World Cup and enjoyed a successful individual campaign. However, rumor has it that the World Cup winner is seeking a way out of Chelsea. The reasons for his desire to leave are unknown, but it raises questions about his future at the club.

Will Enzo Fernandez leave Chelsea?

Enzo Fernandez sealed his commitment to Chelsea with a massive nine-year contract upon joining them in the January 2023 transfer window from the Portuguese club Benfica. The Blues paid a record-breaking transfer fee of €121 million to acquire the services of the World Cup-winning midfielder from Benfica.

Unfortunately, the Argentine is reportedly considering leaving Chelsea after only one year. He is apparently unhappy with his new role under manager Mauricio Pochettino and seeks an exit from the club. Additionally, their performance has not met the expectations associated with their hefty £106.8 million price tag upon joining the Blues.

According to Football Transfers, the player’s representative, Uriel Perez, has already initiated talks with various clubs about a potential move in the summer. Even though the 23-year-old’s contract at Stamford Bridge, which runs until 2032, was extended for an additional year after the club activated a one-year extension clause.

It is believed that Enzo Fernandez is not the only player regretting signing a long-term deal with the London club, as the project has seemingly failed to deliver on the promises that attracted them. Similarly, uncertainty looms over the future of boss Mauricio Pochettino amid struggling results.

Under Mauricio Pochettino’s management, Enzo has made a total of 28 appearances, scoring five goals and providing one assist across all competitions this season.

Chelsea currently stands in 11th place in the Premier League, having suffered a series of defeats. Despite a disappointing campaign, the team has a chance to win silverware as they face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in the Carabao Cup Final 2024 at the end of this month
