Enzo Fernandez is reportedly begging Benfica to let him join Chelsea by their next fixture at the weekend

After a stunning World Cup in which he helped Lionel Messi fulfil his lifeling dream – there has been alot of speculation about the future of the talented Fernandez.

It has been widely claimed on many occasions that he is a player that Chelsea are keen on and want to bring to London – with suggestions that a Blues record offer has already been submitted

As per Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea are closing in on securing the services of Benfica’s midfielder Enzo Fernandez, he tweeted: ‘Enzo #Fernandez is very close to signing for @ChelseaFC! Last details on payment terms: €127m deal in instalments – from @SLBenfica.’

The talks between the two parties are in ”advanced stages” with the English club looking to shell out €127 m (around €40m in three different installments).

The 21-year-old then defied his club by returning to Argentina to ring in the New Year, missing training in the process – and he is likely to face disciplinary action from the club but according to O Jogo, he has informed Benfica he does not want to be involved in their next fixture set to take place on Friday evening.

Fernandez is reportedly begging Benfica president Rui Costa to push through the move but the former midfielder is still hoping to keep the star in the Portuguese capital until the summer.

Benfica manager Roger Schmidt recently admitted that he feared Fernandez has played his last game for Benfica, he said: ‘In my opinion Enzo played well today.
