Fabrizio Romano says club has "no intention" of selling star player to Man Utd or Liverpool

Fabrizio Romano says club has "no intention" of selling star player to Man Utd or Liverpool

He's wanted by both United and Liverpool.

Manchester United and Liverpool have been handed a blow as Benfica have "no intention" of selling Enzo Fernandez in January.

The Argentine midfielder has a £104million release clause and unless that is met, it appears as though he will be going nowhere anytime soon.

Fernandez has featured in all three of Argentina's group games at the World Cup and has been in great form for Benfica this season.

Benfica qualified top of their Champions League group, that included Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

Portuguese outlet Record Portugal claim that all three of United, Manchester City and Liverpool could make a move for the midfielder in January.

Fernandez has a release clause of €120m

The 21-year-old joined Benfica from Argentine club River Plate in June for around €10m (£8.75m).

Romano tweeted: "The release clause included into Enzo Fernández contract with Benfica is worth €120m. Club has no intention to sell Enzo or let him leave in January. #transfers

"River Plate also have percentage of future sale on Enzo."

Fernandez has discussed his future recently.

He told TyC Sports: "Calmly, humbly, with a low profile. I try to work day by day to keep improving and growing.

"Luckily I'm finding regularity, continuity and my teammates and the coaching staff help me a lot. I handle it well.

"I'm grateful for the compliments, I read a lot of the messages they send and I'm happy.

"I will continue on this path."
