Benfica Deny Club President Rui Costa’s Transfer Comments on Enzo Fernandes

Enzo Fernandez: Benfica have denied comments that have been reported to be said by their president Rui Costa that they will let Fernandez leave the club if his release clause is met.

A number of clubs are reportedly interested in acquiring the services of the highly-rated Argentine midfielder, who joined Benfica in the summer transfer window of 2022.

Benfica have now denied the comments reported to have been said by Rui Costa. The Portuguese outfit insists that Rui Costa never said the words that are circulating and stressed that Enzo Fernandez is not for sale.

Sport Lisboa e Benfica reiterates its intention to count on the player Enzo Fernández until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Enzo Fernandez has a contract that runs until 2027 with Benfica. That means the 21-year-old Argentine has more than four years left on the contract he signed in the summer of 2022.

Amid speculation linking him with a move away from Benfica, the Portuguese outfit’s manager Roger Schmidt insisted he will respect the decision that Enzo Fernandez takes with regard to his future.

Reports have said Enzo Fernandez has a €120m release clause in his contract with Benfica. That means clubs interested in their services of Fernandez could trigger the release clause to land the highly-rated midfielder.

Meanwhile, Enzo Fernandez has largely been impressive for Benfica so far in the 22/23 season. The 21-year-old has three goals and five assists to his name in 24 appearances for Benfica across all competitions in the 22/23 season.
