Chelsea fans debate who should become the next Real Madrid boss

Real Madrid made a major announcement on Monday, confirming that Julen Lopetegui had been sacked as manager.

One would not think that such news concerned Chelsea fans, but following reports that their former manager Antonio Conte is a contender, some have taken an interest in the developments.

The Italian has been favourite to take the hotseat at the Bernabeu for some time, but according to Marca, his appointment has stalled because the former Chelsea boss has demanded that the club make two new signings.

Castilla coach Santiago Solari has been put in interim charge of Los Blancos, but many Blues supporters are hoping that Conte takes the role.

Their main reason being that they do not think that Eden Hazard will move to Madrid with Conte at the helm.

In a discussion on Reddit, some Chelsea fans debated other possible targets for the role, with one urging Madrid to take Mauricio Pochettino from Tottenham Hotspur.

A few also spoke of the possibility of Belgium boss Roberto Martinez becoming the next head coach of the Spanish giants.
