Bayern Munich are ramping up their efforts to secure highly-rated Barcelona centre-back Ronald Araujo this summer.

Spanish outlet Diario Sport reports that the Bundesliga side are considering making a whopping €100 million bid for the defender.

The Bundesliga titans, under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel, have devised a plan they believe could pry the 24-year-old Uruguayan away from Camp Nou.

Despite Araujo’s pivotal role in the heart of Barca’s defense, Bayern are betting on Barcelona’s pressing financial needs to compel them to accept the lucrative offer.

With ambitions of making Araujo a cornerstone of Tuchel’s squad overhaul, Bayern is willing to offer a contract substantially richer than what Barcelona can muster.

Manchester United and Newcastle United could join the chase for Araujo after having been linked with the defender in recent months.
