Ruben Amorim’s departure from Sporting is a done deal…the official announcement will be made after the final game

Ruben Amorim is the second choice...An Italian journalist makes a remarkable statement regarding Liverpool's next manager Transfers

Jurgen Klopp, who has led Liverpool since October 2015 and successfully transformed the smoldering team into a strong club, will be relieved of his duties at the end of the season.

With Xabi Alonso, a big favourite to succeed him, deciding to stay at Bayer Leverkusen, Ruben Amorim became the top priority target. Several journalists reported on discussions between Liverpool and the manager’s agent, who said that a three-year contract had been offered.

It has also been reported that the broad terms of the contract have been agreed and that the Portuguese manager is also keen to take charge at Anfield.

Portuguese journalist Pedro Sepúlveda, who has been reporting on progress, reported that Ruben Amorim is hungry to leave Sporting at the end of the season, but that an official announcement from the club and the manager will only be made after the last match of the season.

“Rúben Amorim has already made a decision but won’t announce it yet. Portuguese coach will leave SportingCP at the end of the season regardless of whether he wins titles or not. It’s the end of the road for Amorim ahead of Sporting.”
