The 23-year-old Fernandez joined the Blues in a £107 million winter deal from Benfica.
Just one month had passed since Argentina’s World Cup victory when he made the transition, and he signed an eight and a half year contract at Stamford Bridge.
The midfield player is reportedly amenable to a transfer away, though. Additionally, he wishes to join Barcelona, according to Spanish publication Sport.
The La Liga powerhouses view Fernandez as a major target, but a deal is unlikely to be made because of their financial problems. Due to the fact that his current contract expires in 2032, Barcelona would need to make a sizable bid before Chelsea would even contemplate selling.
According to recent sources, Fernandez is not content at Stamford Bridge, mainly because of Chelsea’s unsatisfactory performance.
Despite being 12th in the Premier League standings the previous year, the Blues have not advanced very far. They are now 11th in the standings, behind teams like Brighton, Wolves, and Newcastle.
But on Wednesday, during Chelsea’s FA Cup fourth-round replay against Aston Villa, Fernandez seemed to put an end to the leaving rumors.
The midfield player held his shirt up to the cameras and pointed to his name in the 54th minute, following up his spectacular free kick that put the Blues ahead 3-0.
Later, Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, stated: “Today, Enzo showed his quality and why he’s here.”However, we had no reservations about him, Caicedo, or any other player—young athletes who came here hoping to win championships and score goals with every move!.”He is a world-class athlete. See, when he joined on a year ago, he had just come in after almost two years of pressure, no vacations, and no downtime. He was also still quite young, and the squad needed time to gel as a new setting, language, and culture.
“You need time for all these kinds of situations. I wish not to irritate anyone. It’s not an excuse in my opinion. I truly believe in the player and the project, which is why I want to be here.However, please stop setting expectations that don’t reflect reality and support the gamers here as they attempt to construct something. “Of course, we will be here to help if that happens again.” I’m not surprised since Enzo is capable of both scoring goals of this nature and performing as he did today.”
