Ruben Amorim, the manager of Sporting Lisbon, has stated that he does not want to become involved in any speculation about a possible transfer to Manchester United.
Amorim has been widely connected with a variety of different European clubs since guiding Sporting to the 2020-21 Primeira Liga title.
However, the 38-year-old has remained with the Portuguese giants, with the present goal of recovering their top-flight crown after coming fourth in 2022-23.
Leoes are presently three points ahead of Benfica and Porto after a nine-game unbeaten run, but their good form has only heightened Amorim’s profile.
With Erik ten Hag floundering at Manchester United, it has been reported that club management are considering prospective replacements for a head coach who has overseen eight defeats in 15 games this season.
There are contradictory stories about how much time the Dutchman has to turn things around at Old Trafford before crucial Premier League and Champions League matches against Fulham and Copenhagen, respectively.
Amorim was inevitably questioned about the subject at a recent press conference due to his previous connections with openings at United, but he has made an attempt to remove himself from the ongoing situation.
According to the Daily Mail, Amorim told reporters, “This year I’m not going to go back to the same conversation as last year.”
“I’m not going to say anything about these situations.” The future is unknown; it is determined by the outcomes.
“In terms of the future, I have an idea for the end of the season, but I won’t say it now,” he continued. However, the outcomes and context lead us to a different conclusion.
“I don’t want to make any comments about these things.” Manchester United has not approached me.”
Despite the fact that Amorim is thought to have a release clause in his Sporting contract, a recent report said that United would have to pay £15 million to sack Ten Hag.
According to a recent source, a number of United players have begun to question Ten Hag, who has taken a tough stance in some instances and has struggled to persuade his team to play a consistent brand of football.
