Real Madrid could have a major input on who Tottenham appoint as their next manager, according to reports. Los Blancos may soon be searching for a new boss of their own and two candidates for the Spurs job may be of interest.
Tottenham and Antonio Conte parted ways on Sunday through a mutual agreement . The Italian’s rant following the 3-3 draw at Southampton a week earlier proved to be the final straw for chairman Daniel Levy.
Assistant Cristian Stellini has been placed in temporary charge, with Ryan Mason alongside him. Spurs have been linked with a host of managers in the last week.
Mauricio Pochettino could make a return to the club after being out of the game since last summer. Meanwhile, Julian Nagelsmann was only sacked by Bayern Munich last week but has already been linked with the Spurs job.

However, Real could have a say on the pursuit of both managers. Ancelotti’s future at the Bernabeu is in serious doubt.
Real find themselves 12 points adrift of rivals Barcelona at the top of La Liga following the El Clasico loss last time out. Sky Sports News reporter Paul Gilmour claims both Pochettino and Nagelsmann could be targeted by Real if Ancelotti leaves the club.
Both managers have been linked with the Real job before. Spurs may not have the lure to convince their preferred target to join them ahead of the Spanish giants.
Levy, therefore, may have to wait to see Real’s next move before deciding on a next boss. Levy is hoping Stellini can get a tune out of the Spurs players for the final 10 matches of the season.

He said : “We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place. We all need to pull together. Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our Club and amazing, loyal supporters.”
Ancelotti is already linked with the Brazil national team vacancy. CBF president Ednaldo Rodrigues confirmed interest in the former Chelsea and Everton boss.
He told Reuters : “Ancelotti is unanimously respected among players. Not only Ronaldo Nazario or Vinicius Jr but all those that have played for him.
“I really admire him for his honesty in the way he works and how constant his work is. He needs no introductions. He is really a top coach who has several achievements and we hope he can have even more.”
