Manchester United are best placed to sign Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo during the next transfer window, Marca claims.
The Uruguayan has just 15 months left on his existing deal, and he has yet to agree terms over a possible renewal.
Barcelona have made multiple offers, but Araujo is adamant that he wants a significant pay rise for his progress.
This could pave the way for his departure. As per Marca, United could be the front-runners to sign him this summer.
The Red Devils have been tracking his situation since the beginning of the year, and have made a tentative enquiry.
They should be favourites to prise him away, suppose he continues his contract impasse with the Catalan giants.
Elsewhere, Barcelona have also hit a roadblock in the negotiations with Gavi. His deal also expires in June next year.
The La Masia graduate has a release clause of just £50m in his contract. Barcelona face the threat of losing him.
