Barcelona are reportedly willing to cash in on their highly-rated centre-back Ronald Araujo this summer.

ESPN reports that the Catalan outfit are ready to sell, provided they receive a bid nearing the €100m mark.

With Bayern Munich already showing interest this past January, the Catalan giants anticipate a renewed effort from the Bundesliga title-holders come summer.

Additionally ESPN reports that an unnamed Premier League heavyweight is also said to be keen on the 25-year-old Uruguayan defender.

Spanish outlet Diario Sport suggested last month that Manchester United, Newcastle United and Bayern Munich are all keen on Araujo.

Despite Araujo’s contract, renewed in 2022 to extend until 2026 and featuring a staggering €1 billion release clause, Barcelona’s financial challenges might see them part with one of their prized assets to secure necessary funds.
