Schmidts Benfica continues: agreement worth 18 million for midfielder

Benfica is quite busy in the transfer market. The club does not stand still after the arrival of David Neres: with River Plate, there is a multi-million dollar deal for Enzo Fernández, a midfielder.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Benfica and River Plate have a deal worth eighteen million euros for Fernández. The 21-year-old midfielder from San Martin can sign in Lisbon for five seasons. The journalist Pedro Sepúlveda knows that Benfica obtains 75% of the transfer rights by attracting Fernández. That means that River Plate has stipulated a resale rate of 25%. Fernández has yet to reach an agreement with Benfica.
Fernández was also very good at several Premier League clubs. He went through River Plates youth education and, after a short rental period at Defensa Y Justicia, broke through at the club where he is still under contract until 2025.

Benfica and River Plate have reached an agreement in principle for Enzo Fernández, deal now agreed between clubs – but waiting for final details on personal terms and contract, as per @pedromsepulveda. 🇦🇷 #transfersBenfica will invest €18m, offering Fernández a five year deal. pic.twitter.com/jhi1gq6la4
