Report: Ranieri to leave Monaco

Claudio Ranieri will leave his position as Monaco Coach at the end of the season, it has been reported in the French Press.

The Italian tactician guided the Riviera side to the Ligue 2 title last term, and has seen them rise to second in the top division this time around.

However, L’Equipe believe that the former Roma man has agreed to have his contract terminated a year earlier than expected.

The news could have serious implications for both Juventus and Real Madrid, with the managerial position now thought to be vacant.

Antonio Conte has been consistently linked with a switch to the French side, with stories emerging that the Bianconeri are already thinking about a potential successor.

Los Blancos assistant Zinedine Zidane is also thought to be of interest to the Stade Louis II outfit, having served as Carlo Ancelotti’s right-hand man this term.
