FC Barcelona will be making a couple of changes during the summer transfer window since their financial issues hold them back from making some significant signings. The Catalan club would need to sell a valuable player this summer in order to bring in a big name to the squad for next season. One of those players is Ronald Araujo, who is regarded as the future of the club and a future captain. Araujo has been causing interest from big clubs in the Premier League and from Bayern Munich. A price tag FC Barcelona is willing to listen for Araujo is a transfer fee of over $100 million. Araujo spoke with Mundo Deportivo and when he was asked about his future with FC Barcelona, the Uruguayan defender said, “Will I stay at Barcelona? I’m very well, I’m calm. I have a contract until 2026. My representatives will meet the club, but right now, I’m focused on the national team.”
