Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has made two transfer requests during talks with Real Madrid.
Conte is expected to replace Julen Lopetegui, who was fired on Monday night.
Marca says the Juventus coach has asked for a centre-back to feature in his favoured three-defender system and become an additional alternative for the backline.
He also demanded a poacher that will be the sole striker in his starting line-up, in case his signs for Los Blancos.
The requirements of the Italian tactician would be hard to be fulfilled at this moment, leading to his potential move becoming complicated.
Conte has achieved his two previous clubs’ return to domestic success, which is also Real Madrid’s imminent objective.
