Boca Juniors star Sergio Araujo excited about imminent Barcelona move

Boca Juniors star Sergio Araujo is excited to be moving to Barcelona. Boca chief Juan Carlos Crespi revealed last night a deal with Barca was set to be closed "either today or tomorrow".

Araujo will begin his Spanish Liga career with Barca B and he declared: "I look forward to the negotiations being resolved so I can play at Barca.

"I spoke to (Juan Roman) Riquelme and he's given me some tips."

Araujo will join on a season-long loan with the option for Barca to sign him permanently for €8 million.

Interestingly, Araujo could've been signed by Real Madrid as part of Boca's sale of Fernando Gago, but they allowed the option to lapse.
