Chelsea Secure Record-Breaking Deal with Enzo Fernandez Signing

Chelsea Football Club in London has broken the British record for the most expensive player signing with the acquisition of midfielder Enzo Fernandez from Benfica, Portugal, for £106.8 million ($131.4 million). This is the culmination of a spending spree that has seen the club spend over £550 million since last summer.

Enzo Fernandez, aged 22, is a member of the Argentina national team and will be the most expensive player in the England Premier League when he appears in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The previous British record for a player signing was when Manchester City signed Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for £100 million in August 2021.

Chelsea Football Club’s acquisition of Enzo Fernandez signals the start of a new era for the club, with a focus on building a team of world-class players. With their record-breaking signing, Chelsea are hoping to cement their place as one of the top teams in the Premier League and compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for the title.
