Chelsea are said to have triggered a clause to extend midfielder Enzo Fernandez’s contract until 2032.
Enzo Fernandez was just recruited by Chelsea in the last winter transfer window. However, Chelsea have decided to extend the contract of the Argentine player. This is information given by reporter Cesar Luis Merlo.
Chelsea have activated a clause in their current contract to extend until 2032. In fact, from the very beginning, Enzo Fernandez also signed a contract for up to eight and a half years with the Stamford Bridge team. .\
Enzo Fernandez will stay at Chelsea for a long time. The Argentinian also said he joined Chelsea because he liked the long-term plan that the team was developing.
Coach Frank Lampard assessed Enzo Fernandez has become a leader at Chelsea even though he just joined the team and turned 22 not too long ago. Enzo Fernandez has secured a place in the Chelsea squad after moving for a record fee of £106.8m.
The presence of Enzo Fernandez did not help Chelsea’s situation to improve much. The London team is in 11th place in the Premier League and is likely to be eliminated by Real Madrid in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
In the first leg at the Bernabeu in the middle of the week, Chelsea lost 0-2 weakly. Chelsea’s chance of coming upstream is even lower when Ben Chilwell has to receive a red card and will miss the second leg.
This weekend, Chelsea will return to the Premier League to face Brighton. The gap between The Blues and the top 4 is currently 17 points.
