Manchester United have reportedly slashed Paul Pogba's asking price to just £53million as they look to sell the Frenchman next summer.
The midfielder lost his place in United's starting XI and the Red Devils have decided they are willing to let the World Cup winner move on for a significantly reduced sum, according to Spanish publication AS.
Pogba is under contract at Old Trafford until the summer of 2022, but the Madrid-based outlet claims the Red Devils will offload him at the end of the current season.
Real Madrid have been linked with Pogba for a while, with the player openly courting a switch to the Bernabeu in the media.
Zinedine Zidane is a known admirer of Pogba having told the Real board he wanted his compatriot and Eden Hazard on his return to the Bernabeu dugout.
The Belgian is in his ranks, but a deal for Pogba may now be more difficult due to their desire to land Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain next summer.
Mbappe is also under contract until 2022 and a move for the striker would be significantly be more expensive than signing Pogba.
