As indicated by a report from Spanish media publication Marca, Real Madrid Castilla manager Santiago Solari is set to take charge of Los Blancos as the first team manager for an interim period.
It has been widely reported that current Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui will be sacked on Monday at a board meeting. A string of poor performances was topped off with a mortifying 5-1 loss to Barcelona at the Nou Camp.
The Castilla manager rose as the favourite to go up against the situation after it was reported that first choice Antonio Conte couldn’t reach an agreement with the board.
The Argentinian turned out for the club between of 2000 and 2005 and now the Real Madrid hierarchy could be prepared to offer him a dream job.
Having capped 11 times for Argentina, Solari is presently the boss of Madrid’s Castilla, Real Madrid’s second string team, who are fifth in Group 1 of the Segunda Division B.
Solari will reportedly only be given two weeks as an interim manager, as Florentino Perez does not believe the Argentine has the vital qualifications to lead Los Blancos.
This would mean Solari would take charge of four Madrid games, against Melilla (Copa del Rey), Valladolid (League), Viktoria Plzen (Champions League) and Celta Vigo (League).
After the Celta Vigo game, the board would have the advantage of the international break to attempt and find a suitable manager to lead Los Blancos.
