Man Utd go big with Barcelona ‘offer’ as talks over new deal reach ‘advanced’ stage



Manchester United have reportedly offered a huge net salary to Barcelona centre-back Ronald Araujo, though the Spanish press suggest Xavi’s side won’t go down without a fight.

The Uruguayan, 22, has quickly developed into a critical cog in the Barcelona machine.

Ronald Araujo broke into the first-team in 2019 and has since become a mainstay in Xavi’s starting elevens this season.

Indeed, Araujo has featured in every league match at the Camp Nou this campaign in which he has been passed fit.

However, the centre-half’s contract is due to expire in the summer of 2023, presenting Barcelona with an obvious problem.

They want to tie both Araujo and Spanish wonderkid Gavi down to fresh terms.

But according to Football Espana, talks on both fronts have not gone well thus far.

Both stars have reportedly rejected their first offers.

Their dissatisfaction stems from the level of salary they are being presented with.Now, Sport Witness (citing Spanish outlet Sport), state Man Utd are ready to pounce for Araujo.

Man Utd make huge Ronald Araujo ‘offer’In fact, it’s reported the Red Devils have already let it be known a salary offer of ‘€10m net per year’ would find its way into Araujo’s pocket if he signed.

That roughly equates to a net wage of £162,000-a-week.

That would constitute an enormous bump on what Araujo is currently earning.

What’s more, it would be beyond what Barcelona can currently offer.

Araujo has regularly been touted as a candidate to revamp United’s ailing defence in the summer.

He has also drawn links with Liverpool, though Ibrahima Konate’s arrival may have tempered their interest.

The path to an Araujo deal thus appears relatively clear for United. However, the Sport report indicates Barca boss Xavi is ‘optimistic’ Araujo will commit his future at the Camp Nou.

Renewed talks over a new deal are reportedly underway at present. Football Espana declared both Araujo and Gavi have ‘given their word’ they will extend their stays.

Sport add a new deal for Araujo specifically is at an ‘advanced’ stage, though Barcelona are fully aware of Man Utd’s threat. And despite the players giving their word, a low-ball offer won’t be enough to forge an extension.Whether United’s financial muscle will be enough to tempt Araujo away, only time will tell.


Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward



Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are all set to battle it out for Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix.

Felix has endured a difficult start to the season for Atletico and is yet to score in five starts in the league.

Last season wasn’t much better for Felix, only managing 24 league starts.
With competition up top including French international Antoine Griezmann, Felix is often used as a rotation option under Diego Simeone.

Now, according to Fichajes, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards, with Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal all interested in signing the striker.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea will need to find a long-term replacement for their current first-choice strikers.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both reaching the latter stage of their careers for their respective clubs, so bringing a player with a similar age profile to Felix would be a smart move.

A move to Arsenal may not benefit Felix’s development as much, with Gabriel Jesus performing exceptionally well for the North London club and still only 25 years old.
