 Araujo received two offers from Man Utd and Arsenal.

Man Utd is a team that is more willing to spend when it is possible to pay Araujo an after-tax salary of 8 million euros per year. If he nods to Arsenal, he will receive 6 million euros/year.

It is known that the contract between Araujo and Barca only lasts until 2023, so they must soon decide to sell or renew with the Uruguayan player. Marca reports that Barcelona are not ruling out anything at this stage. The club are in talks with Araujo over a new contract and they want him to stay, but they will also consider offers deemed reasonable.

It must be added that, currently, Araujo is only receiving the salary of a player in the youth team and that is the reason why he is not happy at the Nou Camp. 

Meanwhile, with Calum Chambers already leaving Arsenal, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Pablo Mari also likely to leave at the end of this season, the Gunners are in dire need of a centre-back. In addition to the central defender position, Arsenal will also need to buy at least one more striker and one central midfielder in the near future.
