Manchester United are weighing up a summer bid for River Plate’s in-demand midfielder Enzo Fernandez.
According to a report from TyC Sports, Manchester United are keeping close tabs on the progress of Enzo Fernandez. They have been scouting him for a few games now and are expected to be in attendance once again in River Plate’s upcoming game against Fortaleza in Copa Libertadores.
There is definite interest from the Man United, with the report even suggesting that the Red Devils are weighing up a summer bid for the River Plate midfielder. Fernandez’s current contract at River Plate doesn’t expire until 2025, but the player has a release clause of just €20 million that can be triggered in the summer.
Born in San Martin, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, Fernandez rose to prominence during his short loan spell at Defensa. Since returning to River Plate last year, he has become a crucial member of the team’s midfield unit, notably racking up 20 league appearances in 2021.
A central midfielder by trade, Fernandez has earned a solid reputation for being a combative presence on the pitch, whose work ethic makes him a useful asset in the second line of press. His success at River Plate hasn’t gone unnoticed either, with Manchester City among the clubs interested in his services.
