Current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte won’t leave Stamford Bridge to join Real Madrid as the La Liga giants have appointed Julen Lopetegui as their new manager.

Lopetegui will take the reins at Santiago Bernabeu when the World Cup ends in July, as Real Madrid confirmed on his official website.

Antonio Conte is expected to leave Chelsea and both Maurizio Sarri and Laurent Blanc look set to replace him. However, the Italian manager’s future remain uncertain and the club must pay a £9.5m compensation if he is dismissed a year before his deal expires.
