Real Madrid were in crisis after last summer, with a string of failed managerial choices leading the club to truly consider a reshuffle. Eventually, the club chose to reappoint Zinedine Zidane but now the Frenchman is coming under fire once again too.

Madrid eyed up Conte as coach but the reports suggest that they opted not to go with the Italian due to the request of club captain Sergio Ramos, with Solari and Zidane preferred by the Spaniard to Conte.
