0 36

Portuguese outfit, Benfica have confirmed the departure of Enzo Fernández to Premier League side, Chelsea.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined the Blues for a Premier League-record fee of €121m.

TNN Sports gathered that the World Cup winner penned the contract valid until June 2031, on transfer deadline day.

The €121m (£106.75m) is a new Premier League record for an incoming transfer, beating Jack Grealish’s £100m transfer from Aston Villa to Manchester City a couple of seasons ago.

However, the most expensive transfer involving a Premier League team remains Philippe Coutinho’s still hilarious €135+45m (£105+35m at the time) transfer to Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018.
