Next Barcelona Manager Odds: Sporting Lisbon boss Ruben Amorim in to 6/1

Sporting Lisbon boss Ruben Amorim has been cut to 6/1 to become the next Barcelona manager with the Catalan giants seeking a replacement for Xavi this summer.

Next Barcelona Manager

Club legend Xavi announced he would be leaving his post as Barcelona manager at the end of the season back in January, with the five-time Champions League winners now actively pursuing candidates for the vacant position.

Ex-Portugal international midfielder Ruben Amorim's name has become increasingly linked with the Camp Nou gig, with the 39-year-old currently challenging to win his second Portuguese national title in charge of Sporting Lisbon.

Moving to Sporting Lisbon from Braga in March 2020, Amorim guided Sporting Lisbon to their first league title win in 19 years as well as the Portuguese League Cup in the 2020/21 season.

With Sporting back competing in European competition, Amorim's charges were able to reach the Europa League quarter-finals in 2022/23, notably knocking out Mikel Arteta's Arsenal in the last 16 before being eliminated by Juventus.

Regarded as one of the continent's most innovative and ambitious young coaches, Barcelona are not alone in their admiration for Amorim, with the former Benfica player also reportedly courted by Liverpool as the Reds hunt down a successor for Jurgen Klopp ahead of next season.

With Amorim's Sporting side currently one point clear of Benfica at the top of the Primeira Liga with a game in hand over their city rivals, a second league title win in Portugal may leave the Lisbon-born coach with the pick of Europe's top clubs come the summer.
