Ronald Araujo’s agent Flavio Perchman has offered an update on the central defender’s future at Barcelona amid speculation the club is planning to offer the youngster a new deal.
ESPN have reported the Catalan giants are thinking about offering Araujo a five-year contract extension and want to secure his long-term future.
Perchman says he’s expecting to talk to Barcelona about Araujo’s future before the end of 2021.
“Araujo has a contract with Barcelona until mid-2023,” he said.
“Today he is quite established in the team, I estimate that before the end of the year we will sit down to negotiate.”

Barcelona are also expected to try and tie down Ansu Fati and Pedri to new contracts soon as the trio are considered key to the club’s future.
There’s also talk that Ousmane Dembele could agree a new deal at the Camp Nou shortly. The Frenchman is on the way back from knee surgery but is now into the last year of his existing deal.
