Real Madrid have lined up four candidates to replace Zinedine Zidane as manager, according to reports.
And it appears ex-Inter boss Antonio Conte could make an instant return to the dugout.
The Italian is number one priority for owner Florentino Perez following his success at the San Siro.
Conte has won five league titles for Juventus, Chelsea and Inter in his managerial career.
Los Blancos had previously targeted Max Allegri but he has now been appointed by Juventus.
Club legend Raul is also in consideration.
Raul won six LaLiga titles and the Champions League three times as a player at the Bernabeu and has managed Real Madrid’s Castilla side since 2019.
Pochettino is also on the shortlist with speculation rife over his future at PSG.
He is in talks with a sensational return to Tottenham after just six months in Paris.
But the Argentine has been linked with Real Madrid previously and made it no secret of his ‘dream’ to one day manage the club.
And finally Xabi Alonso is also being touted as a potential candidate.
The 39-year-old is currently in charge of Real Sociedad’s B team following a glittering playing career.
