OFFICIAL: Chelsea announce Enzo Fernandez £105m transfer

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Enzo Fernandez on their website.

The battle to sign the Argentine central midfielder lasted all month, but finally Todd Boehly has his man.

In the end it went down to the wire, and there were times yesterday afternoon where we thought it wouldn’t happen. But finally, at some point just before 11pm, both parties were able to agree on a payment plan, and the medical team were already there on standby in Lisbon to get everything rushed through.

It’s a British transfer fee record of £105m, capping a window of insane spending by the new ownership, who have revived a tired squad from front to back.

The changed Champions League rules mean he will be able to join us in Europe too – although there will be some shuffling of the squad needed to accommodate him.

After all that, Enzo is a Blue, and we can’t wait to see him in action.
