Due to a bureaucratic error, Julián Araujo saw how his signing for Barça in the last winter market it was left halfway. Yes, he fulfilled the dream of joining his dream club, but no, he was not going to be ‘fit’ to play until the following season. After the ‘show’ of the last few minutes before the window closed, with Mateu Alemany’s office raising smoke, Finally, it was not possible to register the player on time.
Despite this, the truth is that The Mexican born in California has always been in the dynamics of the first team. He has trained under Xavi all these months, soaking up the style and the very special ‘ecosystem’ of the Barça squad.
A ‘MASTER’ UNDER XAVI’S ORDERS
A ‘master’ that is doing very well to former Los Angeles Galaxy. In addition, he has been “rewarded” in some way with the possibility of being one more in the celebrations for the League title (he did not exactly go unnoticed with his hair dyed pink) and in the tributes at the Spotify Camp Nou to Busquets and Jordi Alba and goodbye to the old stadium before the demolition works begin (it has already begun, in fact).
Planning for the next season has already started and Xavi Hernández is meeting with the footballers y communicating how their situations are. In the case of Araujo, the club and the staff must decide what to do. The two options are clear. What seems clear is that he will have the opportunity to do the preseason.
THE BULLET OF THE PRE-SEASON
The first, that he completes the preseason, that he can start from scratch, do all the physical work and compete for several games in a row (something that he has not been able to do so far) to see how he develops. In this case, he will have to decide if he bets to continue on the squad or ends up going out on loan.
A priori, the Californian will have that ‘bullet’ from the preseason so you can show that you deserve to have a chance. Xavi and his team have seen green shoots, he is training well, he has integrated into the group and they can choose to be patient. That he has options to stay, go. In a demarcation, moreover, that remains a bit up in the air after the conversation that Xavi and Koundé had. The Frenchman, except for special occasions, will no longer exercise as a right-back.
In this way, with the wild card of Sergi Roberto, Julián can be a factor to take into account. Everything happens through that preseason and whether or not the club considers it a priority to spend on that demarcation. We will see…
