Antonio Conte ‘arrives in London’ before Real Madrid move

Antonio Conte has reportedly arrived in London to finalise his contractual exit from Chelsea to allow him to be appointed Coach at Real Madrid.

Italian outlet Tuttomercatosport report Conte is in the United Kingdom to ‘resolve his bureaucratic issues’ with the Blues, whom he officially has a contract with until June 2019.

Conte reportedly arrived at an agreement with the FA Cup holders for a settlement in a London court on Friday having been relieved of coaching duties over summer.

Should the former Juventus and Italy Coach not become free from this contract, Chelsea would reportedly be owed €10.8m should he be appointed elsewhere.

The report in Tuttomercatosport also says Conte is ‘hours away’ from being appointed in the Spanish capital with a meeting scheduled for 18:00 GMT on Monday.
