It’s official: Enzo Fernández leaves River to play for Benfica

The operation will not make River fans happy because they lose one of their fundamental players in their aspiration to win the Copa Libertadores.

Enzo Fernández won the hearts of the fans with the title obtained in 2021 and was one of the pillars of the team.

What is not clear is when the midfielder will leave because while Benfica wants him to do so in this market, River hopes to retain him until the next one so that he can play in the Copa Libertadores.
