Chelsea signs Enzo Fernandez for $131 million

Chelsea F.C.’s signing of Enzo Fernandez this week breaks yet another Premier League record.  View his first interview at Chelsea on Youtube below.

Coming in at a price of $131 Million will get your attention and for all the right reasons. Chelsea is under their new ownership group led by American, Todd Boehly’s consortium, and they have spent hundreds of millions since buying Chelsea at the end of last season.

The most recent signing of Enzo brings the young 22 year old, who was also named the Best Young Player of the World Cup, into an already stacked group of players.

Many may wonder how Chelsea can be spending so much and if it can bring them back to the top. When you consider the quality of the players they are bringing in, it would look like they have as good a shot as anyone to be a top contender. But at what considerable loss of money year over year? If Abramovich’s ownership group could write off  some 900 million of their losses over the last two decades, is it possible for the Boehly group to overcome it all. That is the big question.
