According to reports, Rúben Amorim has a deal in place that might save Liverpool millions of dollars. It appears that Jürgen Klopp will not be replaced by an outsider.

Even though Liverpool’s chances of winning the championship were dented against Manchester United on Sunday, a treble is still possible this year.

The Reds’ hopes of winning the Premier League are completely out of their hands following their 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, but there are still seven games remaining. Manchester City is now one point behind Arsenal in the race, which is now decided by goal differential.

For the next several days, Jürgen Klopp and his team can put the title chase out of their minds and focus instead on the Europa League. On Thursday, Liverpool takes on Atalanta in the first leg of their quarterfinal match, and the Reds hope to live up to their reputation as the competition’s favorites.

Off the field, the hunt is still on for Klopp’s replacement. As of right now, Rúben Amorim is still the front-runner, and it appears that one possible outsider has been eliminated.

In anticipation of Thursday’s return to Europa League play, here is Liverpool.com’s analysis on some of the major stories pertaining to European football today.

A ‘deal’ by Rúben Amorim might save Liverpool millions.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Rúben Amorim has a verbal understanding with Sporting CP that would allow him to go for just $11 million (£8.5 million/€10 million) if a “top club” makes a move for him this summer. Since Amorim emerged as the clear frontrunner to take over as manager of Liverpool, there has been a great deal of conjecture over the release provision in his contract.

The sums mentioned in recent stories have varied, but according to Romano, there is a $22 million (£17 million/€20 million) provision for foreign teams and a $33 million (£26 million/€30 million) clause only for Portuguese clubs. However, if Liverpool is actually regarded by Sporting as a “top club,” Amorim’s agreement might enable them to sign him for a significantly cheaper price.

Calciomercato reports that Juventus and Thiago Motta have reached a verbal agreement for the Bologna manager to take over as head coach. Although Massimiliano Allegri still has one year left on his contract, it is expected that he will leave Juventus at the end of the current campaign.

Finding a replacement for him hasn’t taken long, as Motta is rumored to have agreed to take over at the Allianz Stadium. The Bologna manager was considered a “outsider” for the Liverpool position and had been connected to Manchester United.
