Manchester United not pursuing Ronald Araujo

Manchester United have been linked with the move for 25-year-old Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo in recent weeks.

A report from Football Espana has claimed that Manchester United have cooled their interest in 25-year-old Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo. The Red Devils need to improve their defensive unit this summer, and it will be interesting to see if they decide to move for other options.

Ronald Araujo has been linked with the Red Devils, but it seems that they would prefer other alternatives. Manchester United have also been linked with Bayern Munich defender, Matthijs de Ligt. Araujo is a quality defender as well, but it seems that the Netherlands international is the preferred option for the English club.

The Barcelona mainstay would have been a solid acquisition as well, and he is versatile enough to operate in a number of roles. The 25-year-old can slot in as the central defender as well as a right back. The Uruguayan international is entering the peak of his career, and he could have been a key player for the English club.

It remains to be seen how the situation develops. Barcelona are eager to tie Araujo to a new contract. However, talks have not progressed, with the terms not appealing enough. The Blaugrana should look to agree on a new contract with him if he does not leave the club this summer. He is a quality defender who has helped Barcelona over the years, and he could be a player for them in the upcoming season as well.

Manchester United must sign a defender

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United manage to improve their defensive unit before the new season begins. They conceded 58 goals in 38 league matches last season and cannot to compete for major trophies without a top quality central defender at their disposal.

It will be interesting to see if they decide to make a move for other quality defensive options before the summer transfer window closes. Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the country, and they are expected to win major trophies. They cannot hope to do so without addressing their major weaknesses at the back.
