Transfer: Man Utd expected to secure two key signings, ready to splash cash – Reports

Last winter, Thomas Tuchel tried hard to sign the defender for Bayern Munich but the German is now without a club and once again linked with Chelsea.

A few days back, Sport reported that Tuchel has made it clear to Araujo that wherever he goes he will ask for his incorporation as a top priority.

The Catalan source revealed Man Utd would multiply the wages to hire the services of the South American, who is valued at £68m (80 million euros).

As per Mundo Deportivo, Chelsea want a high profile signing to replace club legend, Thiago Silva, and have therefore submitted an offer for Araujo.

The Blaugrana center half received a contract renewal offer from Barcelona back in February but is yet to respond to the proposal.

Barca are pushing to agree a new four year deal with the 25-year-old, who was a key part of the squad that lifted the La Liga trophy last year.

Both Chelsea and Man Utd cannot offer Champions League football to Ronald Araujo next season.

For now, the Stamford Bridge outfit are in the driving seat to play Europa League football but they will feature in the Conference League if the Red Devils beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final.
