8 Candidates Who Could Become New Real Coach

With Real Madrid having sacked Julen Lopetegui on Monday without having permanent replacement for the Spaniard in place, here are eight candidates who have been linked with the Spanish giants' hot seat.

Click through the gallery above to see eight coaches who could be Real's next permanent manager.

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was believed to be the favourite to become the new Los Blancos coach, but according to Marca, some of Real's senior players were not fond of the idea.

Club president Florentino Perez is understood to have asked the captains for their opinions on the Italian, and the feedback was apparently not great.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has also been named as a potential Lopetegui replacement after impressing during his time with the Red Devils.

In the meantime, Santiago Solari has taken charge of the first team on an interim basis, and will be in the dugout for Los Blancos' Copa del Rey clash against Melilla on Wednesday.

Solari, a former Real player himself, is following the path taken by Zinedine Zidane, who was also in charge of the club's Castilla (reserve) side before taking charge of the first team.

Reports suggest that Solari could be given four games – namely the match-ups with Melilla, Real Valladolid, Viktoria Plzen in the UEFA Champions League and Celta de Vigo – to prove he deserves the job on a longer-term basis.
