The Uruguayan defender, Ronald Araujo, is a renowned player in football. Whether Barcelona or the Uruguay National Football Team, he is one of the main players of the side. Recently, the legendary footballer, Rio Ferdinand, praised him and said United must sign the Uruguayan boy at Barcelona.
Ferdinand said, “A defender I wish United would sign? That Uruguayan boy at Barcelona, Araujo.”
“Ronald Araujo is an unbelievable defender!”
He also mentioned that Araujo has all the qualities to play in the Premier League. I could even say Ronald Araujo is the best right now. I don’t know if it is possible to get him or not, but I think it’d be cool.

At present, having Araujo on defense is a blessing for Barcelona and the Uruguay national football team. If he isn’t a part of the playing XI in a game, his presence is always felt, and sometimes the results end on the other side.
