Ronald Araujo’s future at Barcelona has become a pressing issue, with the centre-back emerging as one of the top contenders to be sold in the coming summer.

However, conflicting reports suggest Barcelona view Araujo as a key asset in the team. Despite having two years remaining on his current deal, Barcelona see Araujo as a crucial piece of their long-term plans and wants to solidify his commitment.

Barcelona await Araujo’s response

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are urging the Uruguayan defender and his representatives to respond to their contract renewal offer.

Barça sporting director Deco met with Araujo’s agents, Edmundo Kabchi and Edoardo Crnjarel, and president Joan Laporta personally spoke to the player.

The club have proposed a significant pay rise, acknowledging Araujo’s importance while adhering to financial fair play regulations.

However, despite positive initial discussions and Araujo’s public declarations of happiness at Barcelona, a definitive response is yet to arrive.

This lack of a clear answer is causing concern for Barcelona, who need to finalize squad planning for next season. With big European clubs circling, Barcelona wants a swift decision from Araujo’s camp.

Araujo is highly valued by the club, not just for his defensive solidity, but also for his market value. Barcelona understands his appeal and wants to secure his long-term future before potential suitors become more aggressive.

The defender himself has maintained a consistent stance, publicly expressing his contentment at Barcelona and his desire to stay.

However, there were also indications that Araujo’s entourage was unhappy with Barcelona’s renewal offer, which should spark further uncertainty.

Barcelona fans will be eager to hear positive news soon. Keeping a defensive talent like Araujo would be a significant boost, as the club look to build a solid defensive core going forward.
