Barcelona confirmed on Thursday they have signed Ronald Araujo from Uruguayan side Boston River for €1.7 million plus add-ons (which could rise as high as €5.2m).

The Under-20 Uruguay international has signed a five-year deal with the Catalan giants and has a release clause of €100m. If he becomes part of the first team his release clause increases to €200m.

The 19-year-old is a right-footed centre-back who will now join up with Garcia Pimienta’s Barcelona B side.
