The Red Devils are eager to bring in a long-term partner for Harry Maguire at the rear with Raphael Varane also on their list of targets.


However, the efforts to secure a move for Kounde have been boosted, with The Sun claiming that Sevilla has lowered the valuation of one of its prized assets to £50 million.


The report claims that the La Liga team was originally asking for £70 million-plus add-ons with United now informed that they will be able to achieve one of their summer goals for less than originally thought.


Kounde is believed to have a contract worth
£70,000 a week at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan Stadium with United set to at least double those terms.
