According to the Spanish website Fichajes, Enzo Fernandez might become a hot property in the summer transfer window of 2023, with numerous clubs keeping an eye on his growth at Benfica. Real Madrid and Manchester City are reportedly among the Argentine midfielder’s potential suitors, with both clubs keeping a close eye on him.
Enzo Fernandez started his youth career at Club La Recova but spent almost all his formative years with River Plate. The 21-year-old spent over a decade and a half with the Argentine giants and his stature in the club’s first-team setup skyrocketed in the past year before he sealed a move to Europe by joining Benfica this summer.
The Argentine midfielder has made his mark in the early days of his stint with Benfica, amassing three goals in six appearances thus far, an impressive tally for a box-to-box midfielder. And Fernandez’s exploits have not gone unnoticed, with some of the most high-profile clubs in Europe, including Real Madrid and Manchester City, setting their sights on him.
During the current transfer window, Real Madrid contemplated signing Enzo Fernandez. However, after signing Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni this summer, Carlo Ancelotti and Florentino Perez have stated that Los Blancos will not sign another player this year.
However, with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos nearing the end of their careers, Real Madrid will need to sign at least one midfielder next summer. Real Madrid will have to battle with Manchester City for Enzo Fernandez, who is 21 years old.
