Enzo Fernandez speaks out on Manchester United & Liverpool links

World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez has been discussing the recent transfer speculation surrounding him.

Enzo signed for current club Benfica this past summer, leaving River Plate for €12m.

He has since made 13 appearances for the Portuguese outfit, scoring one and assisting three in the process.

The South American, though, burst onto the big stage earlier this month during the 2022 World Cup.

Fernandez played in all seven of Argentina’s games in Qatar as La Albiceleste won the World Cup for the third time. He posted leading numbers for touches (118) and successful passes (77) in the final, while also recording more tackles in the World Cup showpiece (10) than any player since Gennaro Gattuso for Italy in 2006 (15).

It has been reported that Benfica are prepared to field offers for Fernandez, but won’t consider letting him go unless they receive a bid in the region of £87m in 2023.

And now, the player himself has spoken out on the speculation linking him to Manchester United and Liverpool:

“I don’t know about my future or proposals, that’s what my representative is taking care of. I don’t want to get into the subject. I am focused on Benfica, we have a game on Friday,” Fernandez told reporters when quizzed on transfer speculation.
