However, MD have refuted these claims, stating that the player’s entourage has denied that this phone call never happened. Araujo’s full focus is on Barcelona, and he has no intention of leaving the Catalan club any time soon.
There’s no doubt that Araujo is a crucial player for Barcelona. He is a colossus and a leader, and he has shown his commitment to the club on several occasions. They will hope that he remains for many, many years to come.
