Fans genuinely can't believe Chelsea have EXTENDED Enzo Fernandez's contract
| Last updated
Chelsea have reportedly EXTENDED the contract of Enzo Fernandez until 2032, having signed a lucrative EIGHT-YEAR deal last summer.
The Blues snapped up Fernandez after his stunning showing at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
He starred for Argentina as they won the tournament, with the 22-year-old winning the Best Young Player award.
A host of clubs expressed an interest before Chelsea secured his services for a whopping £107 million.
He signed an eight-year deal when he joined the club, with the midfielder now extending his stay at Stamford Bridge for another year.
That's according to Argentine journalist Cesar Luis Merlo, who claims Chelsea 'made use of the option it had' regarding Fernandez.
So, he's contracted to the Premier League side until 2032 and fans online can't believe the length of the deal.
One Twitter user wrote: "Chelsea proving why they are a banter club these days."
A second tweeted: "As if Chelsea FC couldn't get any more bonkers."
A third added: "What on earth is going on at that football club."
A fourth said: "These people are INSANE."
Another commented: "I know Chelsea said that they didn’t want contracts to go under 2 years but extending an 8 year deal to a 9 year one seems excessive."
Chelsea, now under the management of Frank Lampard following the sacking of Graham Potter, languish in the bottom half of the league table.
They're also out of the FA Cup and trail Real Madrid 2-0 following last night's defeat in the Champions League.
Despite the club's miserable season, Fernandez has been somewhat of a bright spot, having shown glimpses of brilliance.
Chelsea can look forward to many, many more seasons of Fernandez following claims he's extended his deal by another year.
