Enzo Fernandez has successfully beaten one achievement by Cristiano Ronaldo since officially joining Chelsea. This achievement is Enzo Fernandez’s transfer fee which surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo in the list of the most expensive player transfers of all time.
Yes, Chelsea is the most active team in the January 2023 transfer market. How could it not be, as many as eight players were brought in by the Blues -Chelsea’s nickname- to Stamford Bridge.
Among them are David Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, Andrey Santos, Joao Felix, Mikhaylo Mudryk, Noni Madueke, Malo Gusto, and their latest recruit, Enzo Fernandez. This was done in order to boost their position on the 2022-2023 Premier League standings, which are currently stranded in 10th place.
Of the eight new Chelsea players in the transfer market this half of the season, the name Enzo Fernandez has been the one that has caught the most attention. The reason is, this talented young midfielder was one of the pillars of the mainstay of the Argentina national team when they won the 2022 World Cup trophy.
He just officially joined Stamford Bridge in the closing seconds of the transfer market. Enzo Fernandez was bought by Chelsea from Benfica for a very fantastic price, namely 107 million pounds.
This price broke the record for buying a player in the Premier League when Jack Grealish moved from Aston Villa to Manchester City which was bought for 100 million pounds.
Enzo Fernandez’s exorbitant price also made him Argentina’s most expensive player, surpassing his senior Gonzalo Higuain when he was transferred from Napoli to Juventus at a price of 85 million pounds. Enzo Fernandez’s transfer to Chelsea also made him into the list of the most expensive transfer players of all time.
With a price of 107 million pounds, Enzo managed to surpass the price of the mega star Cristiano Ronaldo. Previously, Ronaldo’s transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus for £105 million in 2018 was the eighth most expensive player in the world in history.
But with the presence of Enzo Fernandez, the eighth position had to be taken by Enzo and CR7 -Cristiano Ronaldo’s nickname- has now dropped to become the ninth most expensive player. That is the achievement of Enzo Fernandez, who has successfully beaten Cristiano Ronaldo’s achievements since officially joining Chelsea.
Despite Enzo Fernandez’s fantastic transfer fee, it will be interesting to see how the Blues perform after this mad transfer. Can Chelsea find the best performance for the rest of the 2022-2023 season?
