Although a lot is expected in this season, Manchester United is not having a good record at this time. After 18 matches in the Premier League, the Red Devils have only won 31 points and ranked 6th in the rankings.
The cause of the poor results of the Old Trafford team so far comes mainly from the weakness of the defense. Specifically, the red half of Manchester has conceded 23 goals, the most of the top 8 teams. In addition, they have only had 4 clean sheets.
That is why Man Utd is looking to recruit a quality name to strengthen the defense and their chosen player is Ronald Araujo. And according to a source from El Nacional, the Red Devils are the leading team in the race to recruit the Uruguayan star.
Besides Man Utd, Chelsea also pay attention to Araujo, but the Blues are not too determined in this deal when they still consider Jules Kounde as the top target.
According to the same daily newspaper, Araujo’s transfer fee is only about 30 million euros, a number that cannot make it difficult for a team with strong financial potential like Man Utd.
If owning Araujo, coach Ralf Rangnick will most likely push captain Harry Maguire to the bench when the English star’s performance at the moment is not good.
