The talent of Ronald Araujo
Ronald Araujo is one of the stars who have made great progress in the last two seasons of Barcelona. Araujo is the modern central defender. In addition to his impressive physique (1m88), he also possesses speed, the ability to pass the ball and good air combat. The Uruguayan is therefore expected to replace Gerard Pique in the future.
The 23-year-old star’s contract will expire in 2023, but he has not yet agreed to sign a new contract with the Camp Nou team. Araujo is currently one of the Blaugrana’s lowest-paid names, so he wants this to improve before renewing. However, Barca has not yet escaped the financial crisis, so it is difficult for them to meet this demand.
Therefore, many clubs have stepped in to attract Araujo. The three Premier League giants Chelsea, Man Utd and Man City were all interested in the defender in 1999. According to Sport, Araujo is studying English and seems ready for a move to the foggy country to play football.
Even the Catalunya Giants have prepared an alternative. The Camp Nou team plans to recruit Kalidou Koulibaly, in case Araujo does not renew with the club. Although the contract has only more than 1 year left, Barca is expected to earn about 35 million pounds if they sell the Uruguay international.
