A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, O Jogo stated that Real Madrid could move in for Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez. It has been claimed that Los Blancos have turned their attention to the Argentine midfield ace as he continues to have a strong 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament with his country in Qatar.

Fernandez’s Impressive Form In Portuguese Football

Fernandez is having a brilliant campaign for both his club and country as he has produced several influential displays at the centre of the park. The 21-year-old has found the back of the net three times and secured five assists in 24 matches for Benfica this season across all competitions.

The San Martin-born talent has enjoyed a decent run of form in Portuguese football based on his average of 2.0 tackles, 1.0 interceptions, 2.0 shots and 1.9 key passes per game in Liga Portugal. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball from midfield after making 89.9% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Fernandez is under contract at the Portuguese club until the summer of 2027. Hence, Los Blancos will have to launch a big-money move if they want to get him on board next year.

What Will Fernandez Bring To Real Madrid?

Fernandez loves a tackle at the centre of the park and can read the danger well to earn the ball back for his team. He can strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range and has got the vision to create some inviting chances for his teammates in the final third. Fernandez is primarily a box-to-box midfielder but can also fill in as a defensive midfielder or play in the number ten position if told to do so.

We can expect the Argentina international to bring more quality and depth to Carlo Ancelotti‘s midfield department at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. At 21, Fernandez has got the potential to become a future star in European football as long as he continues to improve his all-around game with each season.

The Argentine talent could even serve as a perfect replacement for Luka Modric at the Madrid club in the long run. Hence, Ancelotti should try everything in his power to lure Fernandez to the Spanish capital this winter or at the end of this campaign.

The talented midfield ace is well-equipped to make an instant impact at the Bernabeu and could help Los Blancos challenge across all competitions over the next decade.
