Big blow for Manchester United as Liverpool agree deal in principle with Benfica for Enzo Fernandez
In their pursuit of the incredibly talented player Enzo Fernandez, Manchester United has suffered a severe setback.
Fernandez has received a lot of attention recently as a potential target for the Red Devils, as Erik ten Hag is eager to expand his options in the middle of the park.
According to earlier reports, United would have to pay Fernandez’s exorbitant release clause in order to get him off Benfica’s hands.
According to a different rumor, Real Madrid, a powerhouse in Spain, was willing to outbid United and other potential buyers like Liverpool for the midfielder by offering up to €70 million.
But it now appears that the battle for the Argentine might be quickly resolved.
According to the Argentine news source Dario La Capital, Liverpool and Benfica have a preliminary deal for Liverpool to sign the Argentina international in June 2023.
According to the source, “Liverpool has already signed a pre-agreement with Benfica, the Portuguese club that holds the federative rights of the young midfielder of the Argentine national team,” as part of their expedited efforts to incorporate Enzo Fernández.
The English team thus foresaw two additional Premier League giants, Manchester United and Manchester City, whose organizations had also intended to include the old River and Defense and Justice as of June 2023.
The 21-year-World old’s Cup triumphs, continues Dario La Capital, more than persuaded them to bring him to Anfield.
Fernandez was selected for the Argentina team, but initially had to make do with a spot on the bench.
He entered the game against Mexico and scored a fantastic goal. He has appeared in every Albiceleste game since then.
Less than a year after moving from River Plate to Benfica, the World Cup has helped to further boost the player’s status.
What Liverpool would pay for Fernandez was not mentioned by Dario La Capital. If this rumor is accurate, United may end up regretting yet another chance lost.
