Manchester United and Leeds United both want to bring Ruben Amorim to the Premier League.
Ralf Rangnick has been brought in by the Red Devils in interim charge until the end of the season, when he will then move into a two-year advisory role.
Do you want to see Amorim at Old Trafford?
Yes, get him in!
No, we can do better!
The likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag have been linked with a move to Manchester in 2022, but it now seems as if Amorim is also in United’s thoughts, with the Red Devils keen on the fledgling coach, according to The Express.
The 36-year-old is currently in charge of Sporting Lisbon, guiding them into the Champions League last 16, and has averaged over two points per game in each of his three managerial positions. Amorim has a £25.4m release clause, with Leeds also keen on the Portuguese coach as a possible replacement for Marcelo Bielsa.
United fans react
Well-known Twitter channel The United Stand asked their followers if they would like to see Amorim at Old Trafford following the links. Here is what these United supporters had to say in reply…
“This is crazy”
“We can have our own Naglesmann you.. Am excited already…”
“If he beat Pep then yesssssss. I trust every guy coming from Lisbon”
“To everyone asking who he is, I’ll say it. He’s the best manager in Portugal, have to admit. He was in a weak Braga and was destroying everyone and placing 3rd (amazing). He was bought by sporting and in his first year won the Liga NOS (Sporting had not won since 2002[sic]).”
