Portugal’s representative club, Benfica, has rewritten football history.
Enso confirmed his transfer to Chelsea one hour before the transfer window deadline on the 1st (Korean time).
His contract period is eight and a half years until the summer of 2031, and the transfer fee is 121 million euros (approximately 162.2 billion won). It broke the Premier League’s highest transfer fee.
Enso moved to Benfica from his home country Argentina last summer and has been reborn as the highest paid Premier League player in just half a year since entering the European stage.
A defensive midfielder, he appeared in 17 Portuguese first division matches this season, scoring 1 goal and 5 assists, and also showed his talent for joining the attack. He also scored 2 goals in 4 matches in the UEFA (European Football Confederation) Champions League group stage.
It was thanks to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar that Enso received more attention.
In the World Cup, where he participated for the first time as a member of the Argentina national team, his performance skyrocketed thanks to his leading performance. He lifted the World Cup trophy with Lionel Messi and also won the tournament’s Young Player Award.
Chelsea made a huge bet on Enso and eventually succeeded in recruiting Kang Soo, who spent the highest transfer fee ever in the Premier League in the winter transfer market. 바카라
Benfica criticized the player in the process of Enso’s transfer, but on the other hand, he raised a huge amount of transfer fee sales.
Although Benfica only used Enso for half a season. Nevertheless, he became one of the filial players who ranked second in the club’s highest transfer fee sales.
Of course, the number one is Joao Felix from youth. Joining the Benfica youth team in 2015, he developed rapidly and made his professional debut at the age of 18 in the 2018/19 season.
Felix, who immediately drew attention as a ‘post Ronaldo’, transferred to Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2019 and received a transfer fee of 126 million euros (approximately 169.5 billion won) to Benfica.
Benfica became the first club in soccer history to sell two players for more than 100 million euros (approximately 134.5 billion won), showing off its magnificence once again.
Coincidentally, the two players will eat together at Chelsea for the rest of this season. Felix moved to Chelsea on a short-term loan for six months through the transfer window this winter.
