The Argentinian midfielder is wanted by Benfica
Benfica remain determined to sign Enzo Fernández in the summer off-season, but the Argentinian midfielder’s father assured on Friday that the player intends to stay in his native country until the end of the calendar year, as Record had advanced. “From what we discussed, Enzo wants to stay. He would like to finish Libertadores with River, he wants to win it as a fan. Then the rest will come,” Raúl Fernández told CNN Radio/TNT Sports. The 21-year-old footballer was in the spotlight for River in victory against Colo Colo (4-0) and the statements that followed. The parent is already anticipating Enzo’s disappearance.
“The personal wish is and will always be that he stays at River, enjoys the club a little more and also of his condition as a son. He is 21 years old, but he has lived alone for three years and we see him very little, sometimes once or twice a day, a month. The day he goes to play in Europe, we will see him once a year.”
Note that River qualified for the knockout stages of Libertadores. The final of the competition will only be played on October 29 and if Enzo’s father’s wishes are granted, the footballer can only be transferred to Europe in the January market.
