January 05 News According to Portuguese Media Record reporters Nuno Miguel Ferreira and Rita Pedroso
According to the latest reports, the talks between Chelsea and Benfica about Enzo are actually very unpleasant.
Benfica would like to see an offer identical to the one Chelsea made locally in Lisbon.
At that time in Lisbon, England offered 127 million euros, paid in three installments, and Rui Costa asked for 130 million euros plus a solidarity mechanism (youth training fee).
But the Chelsea management understood that, in the meantime, things had changed, so they lowered their final official offer.
As far as the Record knows, they started with 80 million euros, then proposed 85 million euros, and then stopped at 90 million euros + players + Chelsea’s wages.
The attitude angered Rui Costa, who himself remains unhappy with Chelsea’s early agreement with Enzo.
At the same time, Chelsea still denied that they had reached an agreement with Enzo in advance on the economic level, while Rui Costa told Enzo not to go to Chelsea, because Chelsea is not very attractive now.
It’s easy to see that the atmosphere is tense and that neither side is willing to back down, at least for now.
Chelsea’s final offer to Enzo is 90m + Ziyech, plus two new aids on loan
