According to a recent report coveted by El Nacional, the 22-year-old is a wanted player in the market but the Old Trafford outfit are the most interested in securing his signature.
The Catalan news source have mentioned that Man Utd are prepared to bid over 30 million euros to sign the player’s whose current deal at the Nou Camp will expire in 2023.
Araujo has regularly started for Barca this season and he is considered to be the future of the club. As per Sport, the South American defender is not happy with his current salary and wants a bumper pay rise to stay. It is stated that he already has significant offers on the table that he can accept if his demands are not met by Barcelona.
