Enzo Fernandez joined Chelsea in January of this year, but the Argentine schemer is already considering leaving.
According to one story, Fernandez is dissatisfied with life at Stamford Bridge after joining a team in transition for more than £100 million from Benfica. The World Cup champion joined the Blues on Deadline Day after leaving the Eagles in Portugal after only a few months, becoming the most expensive player in Premier League history.
However, after spending close to £1 billion since Clearlake Capital acquired the club last year, Chelsea is still having trouble, and since Fernandez’s signing, the club has only won four league games.
According to Fichajes, the midfielder is “seriously considering his departure from the London club” if his situation in the team does not improve under the guidance of” manager Mauricio Pochettino. This is “partly owing to a football level below expectations.”
Fernandez has “dropped a bomb” on his bosses, according to the story, and he feels that he “is not having the prominence he expected.”
Fernandez has received high praise in some quarters despite Chelsea finishing 12th in the standings last season and dropping two of their first four games this campaign, especially for his performance against Liverpool on the first day of the current campaign.
In an effort to create a midfield around the Argentine, Boehly has since spent more than £150 million on Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia from Brighton and Southampton, respectively.
Although there have been rumors that the 22-year-old may be leaving, his contract is up in 2031.
Fernandez is valued by Transfermarkt at €80 million.
