Manafort's lawyers have been in talks with Mueller's team about a plea deal for at least the last few weeks.
News of the agreement comes the same month as Manafort's second trial is set to begin. It's unclear whether Manafort has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.

ABC News reported Wednesday that Manafort's attorneys wanted a plea deal that did not require him to cooperate with the Mueller probe.
One potential downside for the president is that if Manafort pleads guilty, Mueller can subpoena him to testify before a grand jury after he is sentenced.
