Barça returns to ask Boca for Sergio Araujo

Barça like last year, seems interested in the services of Boca Juniors forward Sergio Araujo.

FC Barcelona is still interested in acquiring the services of young Boca Juniors forward Sergio Araujo. This was confirmed by the Argentine club's president, Daniel Angelici, after lunch on Tuesday in Barcelona with the Catalan club's vice president, Josep Maria Bartomeu.

Lunch took advantage of the presence in Barcelona from Boca president, who attended the awards gala of the IFFHS. The main purpose of the meeting was not talking about Araujo. Angelici wanted to talk to the club about a possible collaboration between the basketball teams of the two clubs. In fact, it reached an agreement for the basketball team Boca Juniors come spend a few days in Barcelona, ​​staying at the new Ciutat Esportiva and can do some training with Xavi Pascual.

But the very Angelici explained that during lunch, "became to be interested in Sergio Araujo and I told them that if they were still interested in signing that we make a proposal."

Recall that the FC Barcelona was interested last season with the signing of this young forward who last January 22 turned 20. Last year Barça wanted to switch the Barça B for the first team and maybe now the intention is the same. Araujo debuted with the first team of Boca Juniors with only 17. (via SPORT)
