Manchester United considers double swoop for Barcelona stars de Jong and Araujo

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Frenkie de Jong and Ronald Araujo from Barcelona in a deal worth around £120 million.

The Red Devils have been long-term admirers of De Jong, and they are now also considering a move for Araujo, who is a highly-rated centre-back.

Both players have been told they can either sign new contracts at Barcelona or find new clubs, suggesting that the Catalan giants are willing to sell them if they decide to leave.

Manchester United are understood to be keen on both players, and they have been informed that they will need to spend around £120 million to secure the double deal.

According to Esport3, De Jong is “ready to leave” Barcelona. This is music to the ears of Manchester United, who can already picture him forming a midfield partnership with Bruno Fernandes.

Barcelona are under pressure to sell players, and Araujo is one of their most valuable assets. Manchester United are reportedly ready to make an offer for the Uruguayan defender, and they are believed to be in pole position to sign him ahead of Bayern Munich, who have also expressed an interest.

If Manchester United can pull off this double deal, it would be a major coup for Erik ten Hag. De Jong and Araujo are both young, talented players who would improve the Red Devils’ squad significantly.
