Career

Chelsea purchased Fernández for a package worth £106.8 million after a final agreement between the two clubs was reached on 31 January 2023. He signed an eight-and-a-half-year contract, valid until 2031. Negotiations lasted for more than ten hours and were led by Chelsea co-owner Behdad Eghbali. The fee paid by Chelsea was, at the time, a British record transfer deal. Benfica received an initial £30 million installment which will be followed by five further payments.

He made his debut in the Premier League on 3 February at home against Fulham and played 90 minutes. On 11 February, Enzo registered an assist for the team’s only goal in a 1–1 league draw at West Ham United. He scored his first goal for Chelsea in a 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon in the second round of the EFL Cup on 30 August 2023.

On 24 July 2019, Fernández was selected by the Argentina U18s manager Esteban Solari to represent his nation at the 2019 COTIF Tournament in Spain. On 3 November 2021, he was called up by Argentina national team manager Lionel Scaloni for two 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Brazil and Uruguay. He made his senior team debut on 24 September 2022, by coming on as a 64th-minute substitute for Leandro Paredes in a 3–0 win against Honduras.

On 11 November, he was named in Argentina’s 26-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. After coming on for Guido Rodríguez in the 57th minute, on 26 November, Fernández scored his first international goal, closing Argentina’s 2–0 group stage win against Mexico. In doing so, he became the second youngest player ever (only behind Lionel Messi) to score a World Cup goal for Argentina at 21 years, 10 months, and thirteen days old. 

On 3 December, he achieved a rather not-so-famous record, becoming the youngest own-goal scorer in the history of Argentina in the FIFA World Cup, in the round of sixteen matches against Australia, when his attempt to block Craig Goodwin’s shot deflected into his team’s net as Argentina beat Australia 2–1. After defeating Croatia 3–0 in the semi-final, Fernández played in the final against France, where Argentina won the World Cup by a score of 4–2 on penalties. He was named the best young player of the tournament.
