Real Madrid are currently in dire need of a new manager with suggestions that they might have given up on Julen Lopetegui who could be asked to quit any moment from now.
Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been named as a possible candidate for the position with the Spanish giants reported to be interested in his service.
The former Blues manager has been jobless since leaving the Stamford Bridge in the summer to pave way for Italian manager Maurizio Sarri.
However, Chelsea are reported to be interested in seeing their former boss secure a deal with the Spanish giants so as to help reduce their severance package for him knowing that he was sacked before his contract expired.
However, a deal to have Conte is still being delayed because he has demanded a long term contract from Real Madrid and they are unwilling to take such a risk should in case, he fails to perform.
Meanwhile, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been linked with a return to the Madrid while former player Guti and Castilla coach Santiago Solari are also being considered.
Lopetegui has failed to convince his employers with the results coming from his team since replacing Zinedine Zidane who left at the end of last season.
