Ronald Araújo wants to continue at FC Barcelona and from the Camp Nou his departure is not considered under any circumstances, but the positions regarding the renewal are still far away
Against the Seville, Ronald Araújo went back to show that the FC Barcelona does not have to leave it escape. It is a central of 'period' and that it can lead the Barcelona defence by the next decade. During this week will take place a new meeting between the leaders of the club and the surroundings of the footballer of 23 years to try unscrew a renewal that has complicated by the economic factor: the Barça puts on the table a very inferior offer to what would ask the charrúa.
Araújo Wants to remain in the Camp Nou and there are not doubts of this. After the victory of the culés this Sunday went back it to leave clear: "I Am very happy to be here. Happy with the support of the people. We are working (in the renewal). This week have a meeting. I expect that it resolve prompt to be able to follow a lot of years in this club. I want to remain me here. I am optimistic".
The big problem and reason by which the negotiations have not advanced as they wanted both parts is that there is a lot of difference between what the charrúa asks and what the Barça can offer him. Araújo Came warning of his conditions to renew: it wants to have a wage that was chord to the importance or importance that has in the team (that it is not little). In the Barça did a near initial offer to the three million euros and is a mount that it seems not being sufficient for the central, the one who also is very attentive to the economic proposals that has done him the Barcelona entity to his next signings Franck Kessié and Andreas Christensen.
From the Barça, the posture is distinct and understands that they will not move of the point in which they are. They have left clear that will not do efforts 'extra' by any player and that all would have to accommodate to what the club can offer in this moment, considering that the economic crisis keeps on being pronounced and that the 'fair play' financial does not help at all. Before it had informed that the Barcelona had planted and will not improve the offer of 3 'kilos' by season.
The director of football of the Barça, Mateu Alemany, pronounced in this regard in the previous of the crash of the Barcelona against the Seville and explained the posture of the Catalan entity in front of the renewals of Araújo and Gavi. "We know that Araújo has win to remain but all have to understand and adapt to the situation of the club", stood out, gliding so the players will have to adapt to what can put the club on the table, something that would be generating annoyances in the changing room.
And it is that, while to the players of the current staff asks him an economic effort to follow, follow concretising signings with wages more reasonable. It does some weeks, from 'SPORT' desvelaba that Araújo and other players of the staff of the Barcelona picture do not understand "the figures that is pactando the Barça with any of the signings like Christensen or Kessié, that will surpass the six net millions whereas to them offers them less money being headlines". To this, will be necessary him add the possible negotiations with Antonio Rüdiger.
The factor that plays in favour of the Barça
The good news for the blaugrana is that Araújo has the firm intention to follow, but will have to find a formula that benefit to both parts. The international with Uruguay is loved with the Barça and the project that is building Xavi Hernández. It is conscious that has an important paper in the team and feels that the presence of the trainer egarense has helped him a lot to improve. Before, with Ronald Koeman, already had consecrated like a 'fixed' in the defence, but now feels that it has taken a step forward, with his mejoría in the exit of balloon and defending in rival field.
What yes is clear is that it is a subject that the Barça has to attack and solve as soon as possible, conscious that from sound a lot of the teams that are very interested in the central, in case that 'break' negotiations with the Barcelona. Andl Manchester United is had to pay his price of traspaso (that it would be high) this summer and offer him more than the Barça, to the equal that different clubs of the Premier League.
