Former Atletico Madrid coach Jorge D’Alessandro has revealed he offered Enzo Fernandez to Real Madrid and Barcelona for €10m.
Argentine D’Alessandro made contact with both LaLiga giants when Fernandez was with River Plate. The midfielder left Benfica this week for Chelsea in a British record €120m transfer.
D’Alessandro said on social media: “Terrible management error by Real Madrid and Barcelona… Today he is the best in the world in his position, I offered him when he cost 10 million euros to Ramón Planes (former Barça technical secretary) and the Real Madrid staff.
“Today they search and they will not find something like him. Other roles, but not a chief engineer…”
