Real Madrid will reportedly consider former Juventus and Italy boss Antonio Conte if they sack Julen Lopetegui.
According to AS, Conte appeals to Madrid as he is ‘the only top Coach without a team’, while ex-Inter winger Santiago Solari could be promoted from their B team.
However, Los Blancos would have to reach an agreement with Chelsea to release the Italian from his contract, which expires next summer.
Lopetegui is reportedly under huge pressure just four months into his reign after leading Madrid to four games without a win and no goals for over six hours.
The newspaper believes the Spaniard’s time will be up if the Champions League holders lose the Clasico to Barcelona on October 28.
