Barcelona race to appoint Ruben Amorim as new head coach (reliability: 3 stars)

Barcelona are 'racing to try and secure the appointment of Ruben Amorim', reports The Independent's Miguel Delaney.

The Catalans have been working on landing the Sporting Lisbon coach while Liverpool and Bayern Munich were mostly focused on Xabi Alonso's decision. Now, Amorim is a major target for both Barca and Liverpool.

The 39-year-old has led Sporting to 142 wins out of 203 games in all competitions and won four trophies with the Portuguese side, including the domestic league title in 2020/21.

It is widely suggested that Amorim's style of play would perfectly suit Barcelona: attacking 3-4-3 with the emphasis of building up from deep and being fluid up front.

We would recommend you to treat this rumour with caution: Amorim is reportedly being considered the no. 1 candidate at Liverpool while his €13m release clause should be a problem for Barca; besides, there are no other credible outlets confirming this information.
