Florentino Perez is set to discuss the Real Madrid coaching situation with his directors Monday and in what is expected to culminate in the sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui .

According to Madrid leaning paper  Marca, Lopetegui will be replaced by Antonio Conte next week.

Five goals conceded at the Camp Nou appear to have sealed Lopetegui’s fate and the Italian could arrive as early as Monday afternoon.

.If not, Santiago Solari will take temporary charge of the first team for Wednesday’s Copa del Rey game against Melilla.

Conte will be Madrid’s next coach, after finally resolving his contract dispute with former club Chelsea, freeing him up to take over at another club without taking a financial loss.

The president and his board of directors see Lopetegui’s position as unsustainable and are looking to take action immediately.

Florentino left the Camp Nou immediately after the game without speaking to the players or his coach.

Confidence has been completely lost in the Basque and although his players have all defended him, they are not performing.The consensus at the club is that a coach with a big personality is needed to drill the players into getting back to their best and Conte is seen as exactly that.
