Man Utd receive Kounde boost as Sevilla lower asking price

Sevilla have lowered their asking price for Jules Kounde.

The 22-year-old centre-back is a target for Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Kounde was originally evaluated at £70m.

But the Spanish outfit are now ready to accept offers for £50m, reports the Sun.

Kounde was close to joining Manchester City last summer after a stellar campaign with the Andalusian club.

It included a fine performance against United in the Europa League semi-finals, with his team eventually winning the competition.

Solskjaer views Kounde as the ideal man to compete with Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
