GAVI and Ronald Araujo are expected to resolve their contract issues and stay at Barcelona this summer.
Last week it was announced that the duo had three “insufficient” contract offers rejected that was put on the table.
Spanish outlet Marca reported that the club started negotiations with unbelievably low offers and gradually built up the money each time the proposals were rejected.
No deals have been concluded yet, but acc Barcelona President Joan Laporta, negotiations are going well.
Speaking to El Periodico gem Fabrizio Romanohe said: “Gavi and Araujo contracts? There is a framework that we must stay within to negotiate salaries. The talks are going well.
“We want them to stay and they want to stay.”
Both clubs were hoping to sign the pair after their breakthrough season at Barcelona.
The Red Devils are keen to sign Araujo to strengthen their defenses.
Meanwhile, the Blues are also looking for a new centre-back to act as a replacement Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rüdiger or Andreas Christensen – all three will leave west London in the summer.
However, they will have to act quickly if they don’t want to shell out a staggering sum on the midfielder.
His release clause is set at £42million until June 30, after which it increases to £100million for the final year of his contract.
Both players’ current contracts expire in 2023, so Barcelona won’t have long to reach an agreement with the pair.
