Agent: No Real Madrid talks for Antonio Conte, but...

Antonio Conte’s agent-brother insists ‘there’s been no contact with Real Madrid’ but suggests the Coach is close to cutting ties with Chelsea.

It was reported on Friday that Conte had negotiated a severance package with Chelsea and reached a verbal agreement to become Madrid’s next boss.

However, Daniele told Gazzetta dello Sport: “There’s been no contact with Real Madrid or Milan.

“Antonio is on holiday in Egypt and I haven’t received any important calls. I’d like to clarify, in this regard, that I’m his only representative.

“In the same way, it’s clear that my brother no longer has any ties with Chelsea after his dismissal in July.

“Now we await the outcome of the case: our lawyers are at work.”

It appears increasingly likely that defeat in Sunday’s Clasico against Barcelona will result in Julen Lopetegui’s dismissal.
