Manchester United made Harry Maguire the most expensive defender in the world when they hired him in the summer of 2019.
Moreover, last summer, the Red Devils lured four time Champions League winner and World Champion, Raphael Varane. Still, the problems at the back have been persistent and reports suggest that a Uruguayan center half is in the lime light.
Transfer: Report – Man Utd very close to signing £34million star
The Old Trafford outfit are interested in hiring the services of Ronald Araujo, whose contract with Barca will expire in 2023.
According to a recent story published by AS, the South American defender only earns a salary of 1 million euros per season and he surely deserves a bumper pay rise being an important member of Xavi’s squad.
The renowned Spanish news source have mentioned that Barcelona have proposed a new deal that will make the player earn around 4 million euros per season.
However, to put pressure on the Catalan club, Araujo’s representatives have leaked the info that Man Utd have offered a contract worth more than 8 million euros per season i.e around £130,000-a-week.
AS mention that the 23-year-old’s prime wish is to stay at the Nou Camp. Therefore, it will not be wrong to say that his agents are just using Man Utd’s interest to get a better deal from Barcelona.
Araujo has been strong in the defense and has also netted 4 goals in the league this term. Moreover, during the international break, he helped Uruguay book a place in the World Cup finals.
In your view, who should Man Utd sign to improve their defense in the summer?
