CHELSEA have been told to restructure their transfer bid for Enzo Fernandez by Benfica.

The Blues have submitted an offer believed to be around £112million.

That is above Fernandez’s £106m buyout clause but Benfica are still not happy with the deal.

The Portuguese club is demanding Chelsea restructure their bid, which was made up of three payments of 37.3m over three years.

Chelsea are hoping to evade financial fair play restrictions by staggering their payments, having spent heavily in the summer.

Fernandez has reportedly agreed to join Chelsea and has informed Benfica of his desire to leave.

He also infuriated his manager Roger Schmidt by taking a week off to celebrate New Year’s in Argentina.

Schmidt hinted at the fact Fernandez may have played his last game for Benfica at Braga last week.

Chelsea will be keen to wrap up the deal quickly to allow them to focus on other targets.

The Blues are said to be planning on hijacking Arsenal’s move for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhailo Mudryk.

Arsenal have targeted the Ukrainian for some time but their latest offer of £62m is still below Shakhtar’s valuation.

If the Blues agree to meet the asking price, around £60m with another £20m in add-ons, and offer better terms than the Gunners they could pip the Premier League leaders to the deal.
