The future of Julián Araujo (21 years old), Barcelona’s Mexican defender, passes through Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. He will play on loan next season as MD advanced. The agreement between clubs has been sealed for a long time. Meanwhile, the footballer rushes a few days off, after winning the Gold Cup with Mexico. He will no longer go through the Barça tour in the United States.
There’s yet to be a confirmation for the date of arrival of the Mexican in Las Palmas. But in recent days there have even been videoconferences between the sports director of the yellow box, Luis Helguera, and his coach, Javier García Pimienta to begin to convey his role in his new team and what is expected of him.
It will be Julián Araujo’s first adventure in Europe after signing for Barça. The Barça club wants the Mexican player to gain minutes and experience in the First Division. They believe that in Las Palmas he will have the opportunity to grow under the orders of a coach who knows the Barça style perfectly. And the player sees it with good eyes.
The young fullback arrived to Barcelona 6 months ago. However, due to problems with his documents, he missed the deadline of the transfer window. Therefore, the young defender wasn’t able to make his official debut.
Now, it looks like the club wants him to gain La Liga experience next season. Garcia Pimienta’s team looks like a great place to improve gain this experience. Although Julián Araujo would love to stay at Barcelona, it looks like there’s no room for him in the team. Therefore, a loan looks like a reasonable option.
