What Real Madrid is looking for in Sokoto appears to be in the pocket of their Shokoto as latest reports indicate that they are set to keep their interim manager, Santiago Solari until the end of the season.

According to El Chiringuito (h/t AS), La Liga rules dictate interim coaches can only remain in charge of a team for two weeks, and Monday marks that limit for Solari after he replaced Julen Lopetegui on October 29.

After guiding Los Blancos to four consecutive wins in his tenure, it's said Real will appoint him as the permanent manager for the rest of the campaign.

Former Spain boss Julen Lopetegui was relieved of his duties a fortnight ago after a dismal start to the season, with the embarrassing 5-1 El Clasico loss to Barcelona the final nail in the coffin.

The 52-year-old manager was poached from the national team just before the World Cup back in June, with RFEF deciding to release him due to the announcement being made official before the tournament.

Real Madrid were believed to be looking the way of former Juve and Chelsea coach Antonio Conte but not much have been heard as far as negotiations are concerned between the two parties.
