The 24 year old defender has grown to become an integral part of Barcelona’s defensive system and despite more lucrative offers and interest from so many clubs out there, he chose to renew with the catalan side
Since making his debut for Barca in October 2019, Araujo – signed from Uruguayan side Boston River – has featured 78 times in all competitions.
The player has chipped in six goals across all competitions and has helped kept 13 clean sheets.
The club announced the renewal on their official website with the player also having a $1billion buyout clause
The player has been very consistent this season and has been deployed at all defensive positions this season.
The Uruguay international also ranks in the top 10 for successful passes (1,242) among defenders in La Liga this term, a metric led by Madrid’s David Alaba (1,749).
Xavi was key to his renewal as a tug of war between player and club went in for a couple of months due to wage disagreements.
