‘Furious’ Barcelona president ‘ready’ for Man Utd bid after ‘huge’ Ratcliffe ‘contract offer’ for £60m star

Ronald Araujo, a center back for Barcelona, is supposedly “ready to listen to offers” after receiving a “huge contract offer” from Manchester United.

In April 2022, Araujo signed a new contract, putting an end to rumors that he would be departing the Blaugrana.

Before signing a contract extension, he was heavily linked to both Chelsea and Manchester United. Since then, he has been connected to both Premier League teams as well as Bayern Munich on a regular basis.

There have been more Bayern than anybody else this year, but there have been a lot of rumors regarding a move to Manchester United, as Sir Jim Ratcliffe hopes to make significant changes in the summer.

Ratcliffe reportedly made Araujo a “huge contract offer,” according to a recent story from the Spanish publication AS.

Furthermore, according to a report from Barca Universal, Barcelona president Joan Laporta is amenable to selling the Uruguay international when the current campaign comes to an end.

Araujo is allegedly “on the chopping block” as a result of the harsh criticism he has allegedly received in recent weeks, “especially after a horror performance against PSG.”

Bayern is one of the teams expressing interest, while Barcelona, which has turned into a “antagonist” in Catalonia, is “ready to listen to offers” and “may be allowed to move on.”

Laporta may have been frustrated altogether after Xavi’s team lost 4-2 at Girona last Saturday, as evidenced by his decision to make Araujo, who is valued at €70 million (£60 million) according to Transfermarkt, available for trade.

Barcelona took the lead in the third minute and maintained it for the entire minute until regaining it just before halftime.

The Catalan giants gave up three goals in the span of eight minutes in the second half, demonstrating an astounding surrender.

After the defeat, Laporta was unbridled and his anger had no boundaries, according to Sport in Spain.

Real Madrid, the acknowledged winners, are mathematically impossible to catch as a result of the outcome.

Laporta, who was “furious” following the defeat at Montilivi, was allegedly yelling, “This can’t be!” Araujo and Jules Kounde were two of the Barcelona failures who were “overwhelmed” by Girona’s attacking players.

It appears that Laporta was budgeting for the upcoming season and looking to implement a 1:1 rule, wherein the sale of a player would finance the recruitment of a new player.

The 4-2 defeat has “complicated matters” and will have “real consequences,” according to the president of Barcelona, who is willing to trade Araujo, for instance.
