Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte has emerged as a possible contender to replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, according to reports..
The Frenchman’s future is uncertain following a disappointing season which saw Real surrender their La Liga crown to city rivals Atletico and crash out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage.
Zidane is out of contract at the Bernabeu this summer and fresh terms have yet to be agreed.
According to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmer, the rumours of Conte being a serious contender for the job is “concrete”.
Although there are more credible options for the Bernabeu hotseat, the former Chelsea boss is now seen as a viable alternative.
Real’s case for stealing Conte could be helped by the dire financial situation at the Serie A club.
It is understood the Italian will now meet president Steven Zhang in the coming days to discuss his future at the San Siro.
