Chelsea submit offer to steal signing of £68m star from Man Utd – Report

Ronald Araujo, who is strongly connected to Manchester United, is already the target of a bid from Chelsea.

Even though they haven’t chosen a new coach, the Blues have ‘transmitted an offer’ to the Uruguayan international, according to today’s edition of Mundo Deportivo (news image below).

Transfer: Man Utd is prepared to spend big money and should sign two key players, according to reports

Thomas Tuchel made a valiant effort to acquire the defender for Bayern Munich last winter, but the German is currently unemployed and has once more been connected to Chelsea.

Sport revealed a few days ago that Tuchel has informed Araujo that he will insist on being included as a top priority wherever he goes.

According to the Catalan source, Man Utd would pay the South American twice as much to hire him, considering his valuation is £68 million (equivalent to 80 million euros).

Chelsea reportedly made an offer for Araujo because they want to replace club legend Thiago Silva with a high-profile addition, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Barcelona extended the center half’s contract in February, but the player has not yet replied to the offer.

As a vital member of the team that won the La Liga title the previous season, Barca is attempting to reach an agreement on a new four-year contract with the 25-year-old.

Ronald Araujo will not be able to play in the Champions League for Chelsea or Manchester United next season.

The Stamford Bridge team is currently leading the race to play in the Europa League, but should the Red Devils defeat Manchester City in the FA Cup final, they will play in the Conference League.
