Manchester United overtaking Premier League rivals in the race for 21-year-old World Cup winner
Manchester United are interested in signing the Argentine midfielder Enzo Fernandez.
At the World Cup, the 21-year-old stood out for his nation and helped Argentina win the coveted championship.
In recent weeks, Fernandez has been mentioned in connection with a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool being mentioned as a prospective suitor.
According to journalist Bruno Andrade, Manchester United has entered the competition to recruit the midfielder from Benfica and is prepared to go above and beyond his release clause to complete the deal.
The Red Devils are presently ahead of Liverpool in the transfer sweepstakes, he continued, and they are in talks with Benfica.
The Red Devils are eager to sign Fernandez, who has a €120 million release clause in his contract.
It will be intriguing to see whether they can sign him before their rival Liverpool in the upcoming months.
The 21-year-old is highly regarded in Europe and is predicted to become a player of the highest caliber.
Fernandez was selected as the best young player in the World Cup and has already established himself as a crucial player for club and nation.
The 21-year-old would be a better center midfielder for Manchester United than Scott McTominay and Fred, who are currently on the team.
The player would take a significant career step up with a transfer to Old Trafford, and he would be looking to continue his development with regular Premier League playing.
