The midfielder was named the World Cup’s Best Young Player after playing a key role in Argentina’s third world title.
Chelsea is about to pay a world record fee.
Meanwhile, Chelsea accelerated talks on a deal for the 21-year-old on Thursday.
The Blues are said to have offered him €127 million to lure him away from Benfica.
This would be a British club record fee for a player, surpassing Man City’s £100 million deal for Jack Grealish.
Benfica is hesitant to lose him, but will be forced to if Chelsea pays his release clause.
River Plate, his former club, will also benefit from the sale, as they are set to receive €31.75 million from the transaction.
Benfica are hesitant to lose him, but they must.
