Julian Araujo has signed up for Las Palmas on a season-long loan deal.

Las Palmas will play in the La Liga this season, after being promoted from the Segunda Division last term.

Araujo has revealed that Xavi advised him to move to Las Palmas due to their style of play, as he believes it will help his football.

Xavi felt that it would be best to allow the Mexican defender to go out on loan to gain more playing time and develop his game.

Speaking about Xavi’s role in convincing him to join Las Palmas on loan for the 2023/24 season, Julian Araujo said: “I know that the model of play is similar to that of Barça.

“I spoke to Xavi and he said that this was the best option. He told me that the coach [García Pimienta] likes to play, he likes to have the ball, he likes to play with the full-backs and I was convinced that this was the place.”
