According to report from Goal, Manchester United are willing to lower the asking price for want-away midfielder Paul Pogba despite initially setting his transfer value at £150 million.

The report states that Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward is now willing to accept an offer close to £130 million as the 26-year-old’s personal sponsor Adidas push for a move away from Old Trafford.

Pogba would like to join either Real Madrid or Juventus, but both sides might be unwilling to stump up huge cash and will bargain the fee for his transfer given the Frenchman’s desire to leave the club.

However, the 26-year-old’s Mino Raiola has recently stated that his client would be open to discussing a new long-term contract at Old Trafford.
