Conte on Real Madrid radars, Sarri can still join Chelsea: the latest

Chelsea and Real Madrid have yet to make a decision on who their next manager will be.

The future of Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge is not expected to be long term although the Italian tactician’s exit would cost the Blues around € 20 million.

That’s one of the reasons why talks with Maurizio Sarri have been put on hold.

In addition to that, Chelsea need to find an agreement with Napoli as the Italian tactician is still under contract with the Serie A giants until 2020.

According to the Daily Mail Blanc, Luis Enrique and Slavisa Jokanovic are the other candidate to take over in South West London.

The Premier League giants will make a final decision in the next few days as Marina Granovskaia is back in London after a meeting held with Roman Abramovic in Russia.

As for Conte, Mundo Deportivo claims Real Madrid are still considering him as a possible replacement for Zinedine Zidane who resigned one week ago.

Cesc Fabregas Proposes World Cup Absent XI Play Argentina In Friendly

Argentina’s scheduled friendly with Israel was postponed in light of the ill-treatment over Palestinians in Gaza, with the Israeli Embassy in Argentina also confirming there had been threats made against captain Lionel Messi.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder was a key part of the 2010 side that went all the way under Vicente Del Bosque but these days is extremely far down the pecking order – with about six or seven central midfielders ahead of him.

But as we know, Fabregas isn’t the only talented household name not going to the World Cup – and you can field a star-studded side of those who will not be on the plane to Russia.

An XI of players who didn’t qualify:

The BBC created a side featuring many of those whose nations did not qualify, such as Gianluigi Buffon, Eric Bailly, Edin Dzeko and Gareth Bale – as well as the likes of Leroy Sane, Mario Gotze and Radja Nainggolan – who were all overlooked by their respective managers.

Fabregas was in the side along with his compatriots Hector Bellerin and Marcos Alonso. He decided to reply to Fox Sports Argentina’s tweet and simply write, “We are available”.

Someone questioned Cesc as to why Bailly was in the side and he simply said it was the first team he came across:
