Chelsea has moved to secure the future of their promising 22-year-old Argentinian midfielder, Enzo Fernández, by extending his contract for another year, keeping him at the club until 2032. The world cup-winning player initially signed an extraordinary 8 1/2-year contract when he joined the club in January for a transfer fee of €121.00m.
Since arriving at Chelsea, Fernández has made 13 appearances for the club, registering two assists and receiving two yellow cards. In his ten Premier League matches, Enzo has managed to maintain an impressive 7.54 rating on FotMob, demonstrating his potential as a key player for the London club.
Despite Fernández’s solid performances, Chelsea has struggled to find their form this season. They currently sit in 11th place in the Premier League, with just ten wins in 30 games. Their fortunes have not improved in the Champions League either, losing 2-0 in the first leg against Real Madrid. Chelsea have actually failed to score a goal in their last 4 matches.
Long-term contracts like this are rare in the world of football, but Chelsea’s management is clearly up to something new and different in the contract world.
As Fernández continues to develop and acclimate to the Premier League, fans will be watching closely to see if he can help turn Chelsea’s fortunes around. Enzo Fernández is poised to become a key figure in Chelsea’s quest for domestic and European success in the years to come.
