Chelsea and Benfica chiefs nearly got into “physical confrontation” over Enzo Fernandez deal

Record in Portugal report that Chelsea and Benfica chiefs nearly got into a “physical confrontation” over the Enzo Fernandez deal.

Chelsea, who were mainly represented in negotiations by co-controlling owner Behdad Egbhali, spent twenty hours starting from Wednesday morning and seeping deep into deadline day to try and conclude a deal for Enzo Fernandez.

Many reporters including Fabrizio Romano stated how behind the scenes it was “mad” so this report from Record could be believable.

Chelsea are set to face Fulham this evening and Enzo could feature if he gets his work permit in time, from a fan’s perspective, I will be really worried if he cannot play as Chelsea selling Jorginho means the club lack options in the number six role, where Graham Potter will likely deploy Enzo until next season as Chelsea are likely to go shopping in the summer for an out and out defensive midfielder, potentially Declan Rice.
