Real Madrid are reportedly said to have an agreement in place with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte amid the uncertainty surrounding the future of current manager Julen Lopetegui.

The reigning European champions are currently in a poor run of form with five winless matches and out of those, four have resulted in them suffering defeats in the process.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Conte has already agreed a deal with the Madrid giants and the Italian could be handed the managerial duties, should Lopetegui be sacked in the near future.

Conte is currently in a dispute with former club Chelsea over the compensation package owed to him following his dismissal from the managerial post before the start of pre-season.

The Blues are presently reluctant to pay the entire £9m severance package owed to their former manager but this sum could reduce, should Conte get into another head coach role during the ongoing campaign.
