Wed 17 March 2021 | 21:38

Manchester United have been given a boost in their pursuit of Jules Kounde as Sevilla slashed £20m off the defender’s valuation.



Jules Kounde

is one of a number of center-backs to have been linked with United over the past year as they continue to find a long-term partner for

Harry Maguire


The 22-year-old center-back has a release clause of £70 million, but according to

The Sun

, Sevilla could lower their asking price and let him go for around £50 million.

The Frenchman has been an integral part of Sevilla’s defense so far this season with

Julen Lopetegui

’s side occupying a Champions League spot in La Liga.

Sevilla have substantially lowered their asking price for the former Bordeaux man, although he is under contract until 2024.

United would be prepared to offer Kounde £150,000 per week, alongside bonuses based on appearances, clean sheets, and winning trophies.
