It's a business that Antonio Conte must have.
Until Julen Lopetegui's dismissal of Real Madrid, Conte & # 39; t thought he was even landing on one of the biggest jobs on football.
The season has already misunderstood the fact that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez started to think about a new coach several weeks before the 5-1 Clasico defeat, and finally proved the last nail in Lopetegui's coffin. Conte had every man safe.
The mediators tried to discover what could be done for signing it, bearing in mind that Stamford Bridge had a legal dispute with Chelsea over its dismissal and that Contete's hopes were raised with the separation of Lopetegui.
The club's vision was so advanced that Bleacher Report had even told people about how to manage the team at the club, according to sources.
She hoped to offer a three-man background and asked the club to sign Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich. in January Play with Raphael Varane and captain Sergio Ramos. Romelu, together with Lukaku, wanted a high-level striker to come up with the bill.
But while he was waiting for the final pieces to replace him, the vision blurred.
Shortly after the departure of Lopetegui, former President Ramon Calderon told BBC Radio 5 Live that Conte has demanded too much (h / t). Daily mailmake a long contract, check on transfers, and a large back room suite.
However, as reported by, it is believed that discontent from the locker room is misleading. El Confidencial (h / t besoccer.com) played an important role in the club's cold feet.
The decision to appoint Santiago Solari gave them a two-week break and time to think carefully about the next step.
If we look at a new Madrid after winning three matches of Solari at the moment, no targets were accepted and the moment of Conte's great memory is over.

As the man on the hot seat, Solari quickly realized that he was losing his job. Castilla stepped in to help the first team's emergency aid: an incredible opportunity to test against the elite of Europe.
On the surface, his credentials don't look like mission. As an actor, he was able to capture more than 200 images in addition to Galactico in early 2000s, but Castilla spent much of his time in combat.
Copa del Rey has had a rapid impact since Real Valladolid and the Champions League won against Melilla on Wednesday in the third place in Viktoria Plzen. They were far from the power centers of European football, but were the obstacles to be overcome, and Solari did so. The smiles reappeared, confidence re-discovered. The convincing 5-0 win in the Czech Republic was particularly important.
Zinedine Zidane, the European champion who won three consecutive games even though he had won La Liga only once, won the Champions League's success in Real Madrid. proved by. The side of the Solari certainly did the job for the latest conflicts; They had played with Plzen, and they had probably taken 10.
This weekend has become more delicious because Celta followed Vigo with an international break from a fixture against now. The Madrid board of directors will need to make a decision after the game as to whether the Solari will remain in place or re-enter the shadows.
Conte played a role in his failure to provide the dressing room morale job. It does not seem to be a problem for Solari.
He chose not to comment in the public opinion, but perhaps his biggest concern is that the club tends to give a bigger name to lead them in the long run.

It is no surprise that Madrid tried to test Mauricio Pochettino's loyalty to Tottenham Hotspur.
They first attempted to make him manager after Zidane's exit, and it was discussed again in the previous weeks.
It is clear that this season they tested the water if they were disappointed by the lack of progress in the Spurs. But the message that is coming back at the moment – at that moment – is not going anywhere.
This may change. There is a feeling among some Tottenham people that he first thought of how Pochettino took the next step in his career.
She wants to stay in the Spurs, wants to take them to a new stadium, but at the same time, she loves success, and the lack of signatures made it easy for her to uphold her existing team.
At the end of the season? Could be. Now? He's not that guy.
He mentioned the name of Jose Mourinho, but he recorded his best win as Manchester United manager: a 2-1 victory over Juventus.
In the past two months he managed to get into a storm in Old Trafford, but his position was far more stable than victory in 3-2 against Newcastle United at the beginning of October, and the ax flew heavily.
Each match is still being reviewed to make sure there are progress signs. And the insistence of a central defender in an efficient January transfer window, which he sees as an absolute necessity, remains a small matter.
But the business of the Real Madrid manager doesn't have a way in his mind right now.

Benzema: "I don't see a coach coming in for a day or two, he needs to stay at Solari until the end of the season. He's a great coach. Now we're more safe and we'll race for everything." https://t.co/bks2xcplr2
And who else? Ex-Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim spoken, per Dermot Corrigan ESPN FC. Former Real midfielder Michael Laudrup and Belgium manager Roberto Martinez also mentioned this. But behind three successive wins and the return of the club's feel-good factor, sources in Spain are now convinced that Solari will take on the business permanently.
There is little to be lost as the expectation is not the same as the Lopetegui and the Solari does not pay attention to the same kind of media. Many people who work closely with the club believe that other bosses can go about business without external pressures.
If it does not work, Real will move at the end of the season. There will always be a request to sign Pochettino in a big contract and it will be worth the wait.
