Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has reportedly sealed a deal with Spanish giants Real Madrid to take over the team.
According to Corriere Dello Sport, the Italian would take over once embattled head coach Julen Lopetegui is sacked.
Lopetegui has been under fierce pressure as the European champions have not won a game in their last four encounters.
And there are more reports from Spain that Lopetegui would lose his job since the management is not at home with his poor showing thus far.
Conte is said to be on standby and might likely take charge of the team before their next El Clasico clash with Barcelona.
