Enzo Fernandez made history. The 22-year-old Argentine midfielder joined English club Chelsea from Portuguese club Benfica for 1,399 crores (12 million euros) on transfer deadline day yesterday. This is the record for the highest spending by any English club. Enzo is now the most expensive footballer in the history of the English Premier League. He is also the most expensive among Argentine footballers.

Enzo Fernandez was named the best-emerging footballer after his impressive performance in the World Cup in Qatar. He made his debut in international cricket last September in Argentina jersey. His performances at Benfica were also eye-catching. After Enzo joined Chelsea, the question naturally arose as to who the top Argentinian footballers in the transfer market had previously been. Below is the list of the top four Argentine footballers in price before Enzo.

Angel Di Maria (Manchester United to PSG - £4.43m)

Angel Di Maria played one season for Manchester United in 2014. From Real Madrid. Expectations were high but did not perform well. United eventually sold the Argentine star to PSG in 2015 for £44.3 million.

Di Maria won five league titles in seven seasons in the French top flight. Five French Cup titles and four League Cups. Di Maria made 295 appearances for PSG before moving to Juventus in 2022.

Di Maria joined Manchester United in 2014 from Real Madrid for £5.97 million. It was a record transfer fee in English football at the time. And at that time Argentina's most expensive player was Di Maria. Di Maria won the Champions League title for Real Madrid the previous season.

Mauro Icardi (PSG to Inter - £4.5m)

Mauro Icardi joined PSG from Inter Milan in 2019. Earlier his relationship with Inter Milan was not going well at all. Lost the captaincy under Luciano Spalletti. Antonio Conte left the team after becoming a coach. Scored 111 goals in 181 league matches. Then went on loan to PSG. There, he scored 20 goals in 31 matches for PSG until the season was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.

PSG subsequently signed him for £4.5m. But then he could not spread light in the capital of France. He scored 38 goals in a total of 92 matches for PSG.

Lisandro Martinez (Ajax to Manchester United - £5.5m)

When Lisandro Martinez joined Manchester United from Ajax last year, he became the third most expensive player in Argentine football history. His transfer fee to Old Trafford was £5.5 million.

Eric ten Haag has become the coach of Manchester United from Ajax. He brought in the Argentine star to bolster United's defense. Did he know that Lisandro Martinez will win the World Cup for the country at the end of the year? In the 2021–22 season, he was named the Dutch League's 'Player of the Season while playing for Ajax.

Gonzalo Higuain (from Napoli to Juventus - £7.53m)

In 2016, Gonzalo Higuain became the most expensive player in Argentine football after joining Juventus from Napoli for £75.3 million. He held this record until yesterday. He was succeeded by Enzo Fernandez who took over the record.

He scored 91 goals in 146 matches at Napoli. He also scored 36 goals in one season. Higuain broke Gino Rossetti's goalscoring record in Serie A in the 1928–29 season.
