Real Madrid have reportedly approached former Italy and Juventus Coach Antonio Conte about replacing Julen Lopetegui.
The Merengues have had a poor start to the season, winning just six of their 13 games and scraping past Czech champions Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League last night.
According to Sky Sports News, representatives for President Florentino Perez have approached Conte to sound out his availability.
The Italian is ready to return to the bench, but there could be some compensation due to Chelsea, which could hold up a deal.
Conte has been repeatedly linked with a return to Serie A, but currently there are no top jobs available.
