Ronald Araújo is the central in which Ronald Koeman and the FC Barcelona have trusted to be the alternative of Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet. The Uruguayan of so alone 21 years is a bet of the club, that invested less 1,7 million euros more 3,5 in variables to do with him in 2018. After standing out in the filial, the defender turned into an usual in the announcements of the first team the past season.

By the continuous injuries of Samuel Umtiti, the charrúa had to play more than the expected the past course and left very good feelings. By his big performance and by his enormous potential, the Barça chose him to be the third head office this season, above 'Big Sam'. Besides, the Barcelona did without Jean-Clair Todibo, that has gone yielded to the Benfica by not finding a traspaso suitable by him.

With all these movements, Koeman and the club decided to rise definitively to Araújo with the first team. The one of Rivera was inscribed in LaLiga does some days and lucirá the dorsal '4' in which it will be his first campaign like player to all the effects of the FC Barcelona. This has done that a very remarkable clause of the agreement that signed when it arrived to the Camp Nou happen to go in in force.

From now, lto clause of rescission of the defence will become of 200 million euros and no of 100, that was the one who had up to now. Of this form, the ex of Boston River has remained entirely armoured of face to the next markets. Anybody will be able to do with him paying his freedom and whatever happens his future will depend on what decide to do the Barça.

The true is that Araújo has conditions to turn into a grandísimo central and in an important bastion of the group barcelonista. The Uruguayan is fast in long and agile distances in little space, something that facilitates him a lot his work and that allows him defend to swift forwards. Besides, his more than 190 cm do him be a safe by high and his good exit of balloon does that it was ideal for the style of game of the Barcelona.

Araújo Has more conditions that Eric García

By all the mentioned, the fact to ensure his continuity is a big news. Although the club trusts Eric García​ on a long-term basis, Ronald seems to have more potential that the Catalan. In the exit of ball is clearly inferior to the ex canterano, but physically is one or two levels above the still defender of the City. Besides, his height and body allow him can win individual duels to any attacker, something that the 'cityzen' can not do. Nevertheless, with the permission of Lenglet, who know if both will form the couple of central headline of the Barça during the next decade.
