TOTTENHAM could face competition in the race for Julian Nagelsmann as it turns out Real Madrid are reportedly big admirers of the boss.
A manager carousel seems to have ignited in Europe in recent days after FC Bayern Munich surprisingly fired their manager and replaced them with Thomas Tuchel.
The development came as Spurs finally parted ways with Conte on Sunday night.
Meanwhile, Ancelotti continues to be linked with the Brazil international’s job.
With Spurs considering Nagelsmann as a replacement for Conte, it seems possible Madrid are also in the hunt.
The Times reports that Spurs “may have to act quickly” to land the highly-rated manager.
The 35-year-old manager was on Real Madrid’s radar after they sacked Julen Lopetegui in 2018, but Nagelsmann remains focused on Hoffenheim, the German club where he made his name as a coach.
He said in 2021: “I received a call from Real Madrid 2 years ago, they wanted to know me and my philosophy better. If they call me again in the future, the decision might be different.
“At the time, I didn’t have time to prepare to learn Spanish and I didn’t have the experience.”

Nagelsmann is one of the many names that have been linked with Tottenham as Conte’s contract continues to near its expiry date.
The German reportedly owns a replica of the club’s shirt and is an admirer of the club.
And it may not just be Madrid that Spurs will have to compete with when choosing the manager.
After the round of 16 in the Champions League, Christophe Galtier is said to be under pressure at PSG.
While Inter Milan’s Simone Inzaghi and AC Milan’s Stefano Pioli are both under pressure in Italy after weak seasons.
