Enzo Fernández, the target of Benfica, Wolverhampton and Milan

Decisive hours are lived in River Plate. Beyond having most of the cannons in the possibility of incorporating players (they negotiate for Miguel Borja, Diego Valoyes and Agustín Aliendro), in the club they are also on alert for an imminent offer from Europe for one of the main figures of River Plate: Enzo Fernández.

The club that seemed closest and determined to sign the 21-year-old midfielder was Benfica. Even the main Portuguese media assure that Rui Pedro Braz, sports director of the Eagles, has scheduled a trip to Argentina to sit down to negotiate with the footballer’s environment and with the Núñez club to close his transfer as soon as possible.

Nevertheless, the interference of two other clubs could completely change the scenario. One would be wolverhampton of the English Premier League, an entity that Mathew Hobbs, his chief scout, with the mission of finalizing his landing. The other who is waiting is nothing more and nothing less than the Milan from Italy.

Although the native of San Martín would have liked the Portuguese project, the truth is that they consider an excessive value to pay the 20 million euros of their termination clause. The game brand that showed interest in paying 15 million euros and another five for productivity; but from Núñez they remarked that he will only leave if they pay the clause in cash.

“For Benfica, this operation is considered too expensive because it would involve a total investment of 25 million euros for commissions. In addition to the 20 in the clause, Argentine law requires the payment of 25% in taxes, increasing the invoice to be paid by five million in cash. In this sense, and even without giving up the player, Benfica is already studying other names for the midfield”, warned the newspaper.

However, what could play against the English club in this race is that he is the only one interested in not playing any international competition next season.

Although he has not officially moved any token yet, another important actor in this novel will be the Milanclub that has very good reports from its scouting coordinator Geoffrey Moncada, who traveled to Buenos Aires a few days ago to see him in the place in the Monumental.

The priority of the new Italian Serie A champion is Renato Sanchez, a Lille figure. Everything seemed on track, but in the last hours PSG accelerated for the Portuguese and Stefano Pioli’s men would be forced to activate their plan b. sky sports Maintains that Enzo Fernández would have a predilection for Milan and that “he is waiting for a sign from the rossoneros” to see the steps to follow.
