Antonio Conte To Be Named Real Madrid Manager Within The Next 48 Hours

It was reported last week that Antonio Conte had already been contacted about the Real Madrid job.

Just days later it looks like the Italian is set to take over at the Bernabeu, with Los Blancos willing to give him a two-year deal to replace Julen Lopetegui, according to The Independent.

According to Spanish paper El Pais, the club actually contacted Conte the day after the 3-0 loss to Sevilla, the first game of the five match sequence, about potentially becoming manager.

Lopetegui's heavy 5-1 defeat to Barcelona in El Clasico on Sunday night looks to have been the last straw for president Florentino Perez and co, with several reports claiming he will be sacked on Monday.

How things have changed in the space of a few months.

Spain were undefeated in their 20 games under Lopetegui when Los Blancos came swooping in.

But the 52-year-old is now on the verge of losing two of the world's highest profile jobs in the space of four months

Last week, his team lost 2-1 at home to Levante, their fifth game without a win in a row and some thought he wouldn't make the game against Barcelona on Sunday.

Do you think Conte will be a success at Real Madrid?

Let us know in the comments.
