Man United make crazy offer to sign £33million star – Decision made


Manchester United have been after Ronald Araujo and have even made a crazy offer to sign him but reports indicate that his long term future is going to be at Barcelona.

According to a story covered by Mundo Deportivo today (news image provided below), the Uruguayan international prioritized the project at Barca over the money in England.

Transfer: Man Utd told £60million would get signing done – Forward wants CL

The Catalan media outlet claim that the 23-year-old is one of the best defenders in the La Liga, who is already rated at £33million, and Man Utd have made a dizzying offer to sign him,

However, Araujo has ignored the proposal and agreed on a contract with the Camp Nou outfit that will expire in the summer of 2026 and will have a release clause of 1 billion euros.

Initially, Barcelona proposed a five year new deal but the player opted to go for a three year extension (from 2023 to 2026) so that when he turns 26, he will be able to get a much more lucrative deal when the club will also be financially healthier.

Man Utd have leaked goals on regular basis in the current campaign and failure to lure Araujo would be a massive blow for them.

Now, the Old Trafford outfit must look elsewhere to strengthen the central defense keeping in view that the likes of Lindelof, Bailly and even skipper Maguire have been highly inconsistent for the club.

In your opinion, who should Man Utd sign to reinforce their backline in the summer?
