WASHINGTON (Reuters) – T-Mobile US (TMUS.O) Chief Executive John Legere on Thursday acknowledged talks with Sprint Corp (S.N) to extend their merger agreement and declined to rule out asking for the $26 billion price to be lowered.

The T-Mobile-Sprint deal, announced in spring 2018, has won regulatory approval from the Justice Department and Federal Communications Commission but faces a lawsuit from more than a dozen state attorneys general seeking to stop the deal.

“What I can say is yes are having conversations as partners about whether and how long we move forward the date … and what if any items should be agreed between the parties in exchange for agreeing to extend those terms,” said Legere.
