Has Guti beaten off competition from Conte and Wenger to land the Real Madrid job?

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 07 June 2018, 15:56

Rumours are rife that Guti is set to become the next Real Madrid manager.

In a press conference on Thursday, Murcia president Victor Galvez let slip that the former Los Blancos midfielder, who has been linked with a summer switch to his club, will succeed Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu.

“Guti isn't going to take the coaching post at Murcia because he is going to coach Real Madrid. He was the coach I wanted here.

“It's a shame that Zidane didn't resign two days later. Guti called me to thank me for our interest in him”.

(Quotes from @English_AS)

If there’s any truth to Glavez’s comments then the likes of Antonio Conte and Arsene Wenger, who had both been in contention, will not be venturing over to the Spanish capital...for now at least.

Guti, 41, was catapulted into the mix as soon as Zidane surprisingly announced his resignation last Thursday, while it's also been reported that he was interested in jetting over to Scotland to take charge of St Mirren...!

In the aftermath of Zidane's exit the Spanish giants were believed to be keen on luring Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino back over to Spain, but to no avail.

Jurgen Klopp had no plans to leave Liverpool, while Juventus boss Max Allegri was another high-profile name in the frame, however he too turned the club down.

So now, it looks like Guti is the man tasked with leading the club next season, which would be his first job in senior management following his work with the club’s youth teams.
