Chelsea is a target that Real Madrid “likes,” but they are put off by the high price: Reports

According to Athletic journalist Mario Cortegana, Real Madrid is interested in Chelsea target Enzo Fernandez but is unlikely to make a move for him due to his high price tag. Since moving from River Plate to the Primeira Liga last summer, the SL Benfica midfielder has seen his reputation soar.

He won seven of his ten senior Argentina caps in Qatar, where he also won the trophy for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the “Best Young Player” award. Throughout the majority of the winter transfer window, Chelsea has expressed an interest in acquiring the 22-year-old. However, a roadblock has been his €120 million release clause.

Even with taxes, it has been suggested that the total transfer fee could reach €160 million. Cortegana claims that, despite their admiration for the Argentina international, Real Madrid is turned off by his price tag. Regarding Enzo Fernández, Real Madrid “only likes it” for this reason.

Do you anticipate the club paying 120 million euros in January for an Enzo? that it is irrational, similar to Mudryk, and that the RM measures as though it cannot make ends meet.” Los Blancos also seem to think that Chelsea paid too much for Mykhaylo Mudryk.

From Shakhtar Donetsk, the Ukrainian international arrived at SW6 earlier this month for a fee of €100 million, including add-ons. Since it appears that the Blues will be doing the same with Fernandez, Real Madrid is unlikely to compete with the West London giants for the player’s signature.

According to Athletic journalist David Ornstein, Chelsea is in advanced negotiations to acquire the Argentine midfielder. At the beginning of this month, it appeared that the Blues would not honor his release clause in full; however, their position appears to have changed in recent days.

The manager of Real Madrid rejects Chelsea midfield target exit talks :

Carlo Ancelotti has stated that Eduardo Camavinga, a target for both Chelsea and Arsenal, will not leave Real Madrid this month. According to 90 Minutes, both the Blues and the Arsenal have expressed an interest in the France international, who has only appeared in seven league games this season.

If the 20-year-old continues to progress in the same direction, he stands a chance of becoming one of Europe’s best midfielders. It appears that Ancelotti is aware of that. He recently told reporters about Camavinga’s future:

“We will not allow Camavinga to leave; he is untouchable, just like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.”
Under the Italian manager, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric may leave as free agents this summer, despite the fact that they are untouchable. As a result, starting with the upcoming season, Camavinga’s role at the club is likely to expand.
