Barcelona has revealed that Uruguayan defender Ronald Araujo will have surgery on a thigh injury sustained while playing for Uruguay during the international break.

Araujo has chosen to have surgery and will now be out for an extended period of time.

However, Barcelona has not stated how long he will be out, although speculations believe he will be sidelined for two to three months.

This might result in Araujo being left out of Uruguay’s team for this year’s World Cup in Qatar in November.

“Ronald Araujo will have surgery on Wednesday for the adductor longus tendon avulsion he has in his right thigh,” according to a statement from Barca. Dr. Lasse Lempainen will perform the procedure in Turku, Finland, under the supervision of the Club’s medical team.”
The news is devastating since the defender is one of Xavi’s first names on the team sheet.

Xavi does, however, have other choices at center-back and will now have to reassess his backline, especially with Jules Kounde now out.
