According to Sky Germany, Man United is the latest team to participate in the race to win Ronald Araujo's signature and is ready to negotiate. Barca still clarified that they will not part with Araujo for less than 80 million Euros. Therefore, MU can only consider recruiting Araujo in the summer transfer window.

Ronald Araujo wants to continue his career at Barcelona and has no intention of leaving in the winter. It is known that both Bayern and Man United will return to this deal in the summer.

Ronald Araujo is an important pillar for Barca this season. However, the Uruguayan player just had a poor performance against Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final. Araujo received a red card in this match. He was also the one who committed a foul that led to a penalty, leading to Vinicius Junior's hat-trick.

Barca will continue to keep Ronald Araujo for the rest of the season. However, rumors about this player's future continue to arise until the summer transfer period. Araujo's contract will expire in 2026 with a contract breaking fee of 1 billion Euros. This number forces clubs pursuing Araujo to sit at the negotiating table with Barca.
