According to the "Marca" report, Araujo's outstanding performance has reduced Barcelona's interest in Eric Garcia.
Barcelona's central defender position caused headaches for both the coaches and the board. Koeman himself admitted that on the last day of the transfer window, there were not enough players in this position. When asked about Barcelona’s chances of signing Garcia, he said: "Our window is open until Monday. We want this player. Now we have three or four central defenders. There is not enough reserve in this position."
Araujo entered the team in the absence of Langley. This is a difficult test for Uruguayans. In the game, Araujo performed very well without making any obvious mistakes. He performed well in passing and passing. On the court, he showed his personality in Barcelona's defense, and no one will miss Langley at any time of the game.
"He played a very good game," Koeman said of him: "He is very confident and very strong. He kicked the ball out of the backcourt and did a good job. We are waiting for this game, Because we know he is a promising central defender. He still needs to improve, but this is what we are here to do. We will help him.” After watching the 21-year-old player’s game, he asked Barcelona to sign the central defender. The voice may have died out. Araujo’s reassuring performance may reduce the Catalan club’s interest in signing Eric Garcia now until January next year, when his contract has six months left. Will negotiate with him.
The problem now is not Araujo, but Umtiti. The health of the French makes Barcelona want to sign a central defender. In the club, no one believes that the former Lyon defender can fully recover from injuries in recent years.
