Manchester United prepared to double Ronald Araujo wages

Manchester United are reportedly willing to offer a contract to 25-year-old Barcelona mainstay Ronald Araujo that doubles his wages.

According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Ronald Araujo is the subject of interest from Manchester United. The Red Devils are keen on signing a centre-back in the summer transfer window and are ready to double the 25-year-old defender’s wages to tempt him to leave Barcelona and seal a move to Old Trafford.

Ronald Araujo and his rise at Barcelona

Ronald Araujo has been one of the best players in La Liga in the last few years. The Uruguayan international has been with Barcelona for nearly half a dozen years but has been a mainstay at the back since 2021. He is also a pivotal figure for La Celeste, turning out 17 times thus far for his national side.

The 25-year-old has made 150 appearances thus far for Barcelona, chipping in with eight goals and five assists. In addition, Araujo is one of the vice-captains for the Blaugrana, donning the armband multiple times. However, the player’s long-term future at FC Barcelona is uncertain heading into the summer transfer window.

Araujo will have two years left on his contract in a few days, with Barcelona scrambling to tie him to a new deal. However, the talks between the two parties have stalled in the last few weeks, with the situation capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe, including Manchester United.

Manchester United interested in Araujo

Manchester United’s interest in Ronald Araujo is understandable. The Red Devils are scouring the market for a centre-back heading into the summer transfer window after losing Raphael Varane as a free agent. In addition, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire face an uncertain future at Old Trafford.

So, it behoves Manchester United to invest in a top-class centre-back, with Araujo emerging as a viable target. The Red Devils are now ready to drum up their interest in the Barcelona mainstay by offering a double-your-money contract to the 25-year-old defender.

With Barcelona losing confidence in the battle to keep Araujo at the club, Manchester United can turn the player’s head with the double-your-money contract offer. It will be interesting to see if the 25-year-old Uruguayan international decides to leave Barcelona and move to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
