Man Utd prepared to move in to sign £85.5million star – Report


Manchester United are poised to sign Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo, according to CaughtOffside.

The news outlet indicates that the Red devils are prepared to enter into talks with Ronald Araujo’s agent, with the hope of bolstering their defense.

Ronald Araujo is valued at £85.5 million (100 million euros). While Araujo would wish to stay with the La Liga side, Manchester United could table a serious offer to lure the player to Old Trafford.

As a top side in Europe, Barcelona would wish to keep their top talents. However, they have financial constraints to navigate which could lead them into selling Ronald Araujo, if they get a competitive bid. Ronald Araujo could be tempted with a better contract by Manc Utd.

Manchester United have had their own defensive woes, conceding 51 goals in the Premier League this season. As such, their interest in Ronald Araujo remain realistic.

Ten Hag’s defenders, Raphael Verane and Jonny Evans, are running out their contracts at the end of the season. Victor Linderlof may choose to move to where he can garner respectable minutes under his belt.

Manchester United must prove to Ronald Araujo that they have a viable project under the watch of new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe. This is because Bayern Munich are also looking for the signature of Araujo.

Questions of how Man Utd will lure top talents like Ronald Araujo without Champions League football on the offing continue to haunt the club and their fans alike. This would call for the Old Trafford outfit to offer more lucrative deals than their peers in the transfer market.

Do you think Man Utd have the muscles to convince Ronald Araujo and other top talents into joining the club?
