Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo has agreed a contract until 2026 with a 1 billion euros buyout clause after his previous contract with the Spanish club was set to expire in 2023.
The Uruguayan, 23, has played 26 times in La Liga this season, scoring four goals, including one in a 4-0 win against Real Madrid.
The club said in a statement that he has proved himself to be the present and future for Barca, becoming an integral part of the Blaugrana defence, adding that his talents in defence and scoring goals mean he is a key player for years to come.
Araujo joined Barcelona on a five-year contract from Uruguayan club Boston River in 2018.
He has made nine appearances for his national side Uruguay, making his senior debut in 2020.
