Madrid target Conte?

Reports in Italy believe that Real Madrid have identified their Coach for next season at Juventus’ current boss Antonio Conte.

The Italian, who has just returned to the touchline after serving a four-month ban for his alleged role in the betting scandal to have hit Italy in 2012, is said to top the Spaniards’ list of replacements for Jose Mourinho.

This is according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, who picture Mourinho as likely to be departing next summer, with Manchester United a viable option, after this season’s difficulties in the Spanish capital.

Madrid will then reportedly turn to Juve’s Conte, who took an unbeaten Bianconeri to their first official Scudetto title in nine years last season.
