More news about Real Madrid's coaching spot. Carlo Ancelotti will be fired next week, according to COPE's Paco González. Although "the club is not confirming this report just yet, this is Real's mindset", said González. The journalist also explained that Real Madrid want to hire an elite physical trainer to finish the 2015-2016 season in good shape.

COPE did not want to speak about Ancelotti's replacement, although reports from Italy -- Gazzetta Dello Sport -- are suggesting that Rafael Benítez would be ahead of Jürgen Klopp in Real's shortlist. The club will want to announce their plans about the coach as soon as possible, because their decision could have a big impact in the next few signings the team will make this summer.

Real Madrid play their last game of the season against Getafe this Saturday, a match which Ancelotti will not be able to manage after getting suspended. If COPE's report is true, Ancelotti has already coached his last game for Real Madrid.
