If Gerard Pique is aging, his teammate in central defense is very young. At 22, Ronald Araujo is a potential holder at FC Barcelona. A continuity that pleases in the Premier League. Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea are particularly attractive.
Always on the lookout for a boss-sized central defender to compensate for the potential departures of executives, Chelsea are embarking on a whole new track. A big challenge awaits Chelsea during the next transfer window while all its defense is on the start. Many executives of his rear guard are at the end of their contract (Antonio Rüdiger, Azpilicueta, Christensen) while Thiago Silva is on the decline. A situation that particularly worries Thomas Tuchel who, since this summer, strives to renew a defense pending departure.
According to Sports world, the Blues would have checked the name of Ronald Araujo. Holder under the colors of the Catalan club, the Uruguayan seems to have a bright future ahead of him and several Premier League teams are seduced. Chelsea make him one of his potential targets. An interest that FC Barcelona does not see a good eye. His release clause is 200 million euros. Only this amount could allow any team to enroll him.
