Shower floor problem

I have a 60 inch shower opening, with the drain off center at 40". It is neither centered nor off to the side. Water damage has eaten away at the concrete slab, so it needs resurfacing. Because of the off-center drain, I cannot use a prefinished floor. What is the best way to handle this? I've seen the quick pitch system that looks easy, but I'm confused. Do we pour the mud and put the plastic liner over the finished sloped floor then tile over that? Thanks.

Is the drain off center because a joist was in the way? How much access do you have under the shower?

Mud floor is usually: a leak proof liner, not usually plastic, mud carefully sloped to the drain, tile. The new drain depends on what is there now, probably galvanized with an old bell trap?? If yes, it all needs to go.

If it can be moved to location that will allow a precast floor, that would be my recommendation.
