Napoli boss Rafa Benitez will reportedly make an exit from the Azzurri once the 2014-15 campaign comes to a close.

The Partenopei have had an unsteady start to the new season, having most recently suffered a shocking 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Chievo on Sunday, and it seems the former Liverpool tactician is already thinking of leaving his position in Naples due to a deteriorating relationship with the Italian side.

According to Sport Mediaset, the 54-year-old may end his journey with Napoli in June in order to possibly pursue a job at Real Madrid if current coach Carlo Ancelotti decides to leave the Spanish giants and could be replaced by ex-Roma coach Luciano Spalletti.

Reports have even suggested that Spalletti has already been in contact with the Neapolitan club since vacating his position at Zenit St Petersburg back in March.

Benitez, who led Napoli to a Coppa Italia win during his debut season with the club last term, has also been linked with a possible move to English club Newcastle United as of late.
