Enzo Fernandez arrived in Lisbon on Tuesday. The 21-year-old midfielder has left River Plate and is preparing to sign for Benfica, in a €10m deal on the spot, to which another €8m can be added for sporting purposes.
Enzo Fernandez is still at Humberto Delgado Airport, and he makes no secret of his happiness at the change.
“I am very happy to represent Benfica, which gave me this opportunity. [Saviola e Enzo Pérez] They spoke very well to me about Benfica, a fantastic club, with a lot of prestige and a lot of greatness. I will do my best. I have prepared myself in the best way to succeed here,” he explained, without a doubt when asked about the goal: “To be a champion, to improve day by day and help my teammates. “
Finally, Enzo Fernandez also spoke about coach Roger Schmidt.
“I am really looking forward to meeting my teammates. I still haven’t been able to speak to the coach, but I know him very well, as are many of the players on the team,” he shot, leaving what he could add to the Eagles: “I am technically a very good player, I have Passing quality and vision of the game, but I will continue to work towards growth.”
