Next Liverpool manager: Ruben Amorim deal greenlit as Portuguese source delivers insider info with two possible signing…



Ruben Amorim has been given the green light to become the next manager of Liverpool, with insider details from a Portuguese source revealing two potential signings.


Ruben Amorim has expressed his interest in taking over from Jurgen Klopp and becoming the next manager of Liverpool. However, a recent report from Portugal has highlighted one of Amorim’s goals that could potentially hinder this move.


Following Klopp’s announcement that he will be leaving Liverpool at the end of the season, the club wasted no time in identifying Bayer Leverkusen’s Xabi Alonso as their top target. However, Alonso, who is 42 years old, put an end to all speculation last Friday by affirming his loyalty to Leverkusen for at least one more season.


This decision has not been well-received by one pundit, who questioned Alonso’s commitment. On the other hand, Liverpool has handled the news with more grace and has now turned their attention to Amorim, as well as Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi.


Sporting CP boss Amorim is widely regarded as the preferred choice between the two. In fact, the BBC recently highlighted three reasons why Amorim, despite his young age of 39, is considered a superior manager to Alonso.


According to Portuguese outlet Correio de Manha, Amorim is reportedly open to the possibility of accepting the Liverpool job, should it be offered to him.


This news will surely please Liverpool’s new chiefs, Michael Edwards and Richard Hughes. Edwards has recently been reappointed as FSG’s overarching CEO of Football, while Hughes has taken over as the sporting director, replacing Jorg Schmadtke.


With these key appointments now finalized, Liverpool’s focus has shifted towards securing a worthy successor to Jurgen Klopp.


Amorim’s willingness to leave Lisbon for Liverpool is undoubtedly a positive development for the Reds. However, there is a slight concern highlighted by Correio de Manha.


According to the report, Amorim would prefer to leave Sporting on a high note by achieving significant success before his departure. Specifically, this means winning both the league and cup titles.


Currently, Amorim’s team is on track to secure a domestic double. They are currently leading the Primeira Liga, one point ahead of Benfica, and also have a game in hand. Additionally, Sporting holds a one-goal advantage after the first leg of their Taca de Portugal semi-final against Benfica.


If Sporting advances to the final, they may face FC Porto, one of Portugal’s other prominent clubs.


Correio de Manha emphasizes that Amorim’s intention is to win both titles before leaving Sporting. If Sporting fails to achieve this feat, Amorim may feel that he still has unfinished business in Lisbon and reject Liverpool’s offer.


It has been clearly stated that Amorim is aware of Liverpool’s interest, and although he is open to the idea of joining the club, he will not make a final decision until the end of the season.


If Sporting wins the double, the likelihood of Amorim replacing Klopp will significantly rise. Amorim’s contract with Sporting includes a release clause that Liverpool can activate.


Various reports have provided conflicting information on the value of this clause, with figures ranging from £12.8m to £17m.
