Antonio Conte might still be the manager of Chelsea, but his exit has already been reported numerously in the media for months now, with various managers being linked with the Chelsea hot seat.

Conte is now being tipped as one of the managers to replace Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid boss, but reports from Spain claims the Italian is still keen on respecting his Chelsea contract.

According to Spanish outlet Gianlucadimarzio, Conte has reiterated his principle: he has not received any sort of communication from Chelsea of a possible exonerationand has no intention of taking the first step to do so. The report claims Conte has become ‘shaky‘ and has become annoyed, more for what is written and said online, than for the real communications from the Blues board.

Conte seems not to be interested in the Real job as he has major doubt on the possible position of coaching Real Madrid, would be to find himself leading a group of players unable to understand his methods of training. A dressing room has already formed, and are probably not ready to welcome a coach with new ‘strong and decisive‘ methods.
