According to ABC, Manchester United are ready to pay more than the required money to sign Ronald Araujo from Barcelona. Ronald Araujo has established himself as one of the best young defenders in the world. Manchester United needs to strengthen their defense as they have leaked way too many goals this season.

Harry Maguire has suffered a lot in his first three years at Manchester United. Harry Maguire received heavy criticism from both United fans and also many pundits. His silly mistakes and sloppiness has cost United a lot of results in these three seasons. The English defender will need some help in the coming seasons as he plays almost every match for the club.

Ronald Araujo has once again proved his worth with his strong display against Vinicius Junior in the El Clasico. Barcelona are struggling to extend Araujo’s contract with the club. This has led to many big clubs in Europe monitoring Araujo’s situation with the Catalan club. This competition has led to Manchester United offering him more than the required amount of money.

Eric Bailly is struggling with injuries and United only have three regularly available proper center-backs. They need a reliable center-back who will also provide good squad depth. Araujo is certainly a strong option and it is understandable why United are ready to go overboard.

Why is Manchester United so desperate to sign Ronald Araujo?

Many are calling out for transferring out Harry Maguire because of horrific and inconsistent performances. Moreover, the new manager also has a call to make whether to keep Maguire the captain or not. Rangnick may be implied to start Maguire because of his club captaincy role.

Ronald Araujo is a strong reliable center-back who plays the game with full concentration. He is also very good at handling critical situations at the back. Moreover, he is also very dominant in the air and almost wins every aerial duel even against strong opponents. Araujo also has good experience of playing at the top level with top players.

The Uruguayan defender also recently scored from a corner with his header in El Clasico. This shows that he is also very lethal on set-pieces. United have majorly struggled to score from set-pieces this season. They have only scored 2 goals in all of the corners they have taken in this season.

Manchester United does need a reliable center back and Ronald Araujo is one of the most reliable options in Europe. He will also be a long-term option as he has matured his gameplay at a very young age. However, United also needs to focus on some other areas before offering double the price for Araujo. They will have to create funds by clearing the deadwood in the club.
