Real Madrid are rumoured to be keeping a close eye on players at the World Cup. Los Blancos have used the tournament in the past to scout some of their biggest stars ever, and hopefully, they will be adding to list after this edition. Players like Ronaldo Nazario, Fabio Cannavaro, Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos, Keylor Navas, Thibaut Courtois and several more were signed after successful World Cup campaigns with their respective national teams.

One player who seems to have caught their attention this time around is Enzo Fernandez of Argentina, who signed for Benfica just in the summer.

He has already proven his worth in the European game though with his brilliant performances for the Portuguese side. And it looks like his transfer value is going to skyrocket further as he continues to impress for the Argentine national team.

Fernandez was impressing in the last two games, with his cameos, even scoring a superb goal vs Mexico. And against Poland, he was given the chance to start.

Fernandez put in a very good performance against Poland. He was one of the key reasons that Robert Lewandowski’s side could not find their footing in the game at all.

And then, after winning his duel in the middle of the park, Fernandez showed his quality on the other end of the pitch as well, by assisting Julian Alvarez’s goal, which made it 2-0 to Argentina.

Performances like these will only enhance his reputation in the game further, and while Fernandez might have joined Benfica only this summer, another transfer move might not be far away in his future.

Benfica were believed to have shelled out a transfer fee around €12 million to sign Fernandez from River Plate but rumours suggest that they are now looking for a figure north of €80 million in order to part ways with him.
