Why Conte turned down chance to replace Zidane at Real Madrid

A follow up from Gianluca Di Marzio then claimed that initial contact had been established.

And that could be the key to unlock the logjam in Chelsea's search for a manager to succeed Conte.

However Conte, who many expect to depart the Blues this summer having failed to defend his Premier League title and qualify for the Champions League, passed on the grounds that he wants to respect his current deal with Chelsea. And with a huge compensation due if he is sacked, the Italian has no desire to quit of his own accord.

However, it would seem that Chelsea would prefer him to be poached.

"He's competitive and I think he can find a good solution, and he can find a new [type of] football, because you know the Premier League and LaLiga is not the same football".

AS say the Murcia president's words have moved Guti to favourite in the betting markets, followed by Chelsea's outgoing manager Antonio Conte, ex-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, Pochettino, former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri, Allegri and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. It means Real have to look elsewhere. He previously returned to the club during the 2014/15 season as an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti.

Spanish daily AS quote him as saying "Guti isn't going to take the coaching post at Murcia because he is going to coach Real Madrid". The retired midfielder and former teammate of both Zidane and Hierro was an early name in the frame and it would appear that him not landing another job, despite being in demand, is a key clue.

Whoever gets the Los Blancos job will instantly be under an avalanche of pressure as they will be expected to win every competition the club enters. "He was the guy I wanted, and it's a shame Zidane didn't take a couple of days longer to make his decision".
