Man Utd 'lower asking price' for Pogba

English Premier League

Manchester United have reportedly lowered their asking price for Paul Pogba, who continues to be linked with Real Madrid.

The France international's current deal at Old Trafford only expires in 2022, but reports claim the club are ready to cash in now.

The Red Devils are ready to move on from the inconsistent midfielder and will accept a lower fee, according to Spanish out AS, who cited Calciomercato.

United signed Pogba from Juventus for a reported fee of €105million, but the report claims the club have lowered the asking price to €60 million.

Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly still an admirer of the 27-year-old, who has been in and out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team this season.

Meanwhile, Juventus director Fabio Paratici distanced themselves for a possible move for their former player.

"Paul Pogba as our target? In this moment he's a Man Utd player, it's difficult to think about transfers," the Juventus director said, as per Manchester Evening News.

"We love Pogba, he's a fantastic player but it's too early to talk about our targets for the future".
