Spain manager Lopetegui to take over at Real

On Tuesday afternoon, Madrid unexpectedly announced that Lopetegui will be the man to replace Zidane following the conclusion of Spain's World Cup campaign.

"It's a similar situation here; he already had the contract signed with the Spain national team for two more years, but Real Madrid, who couldn't get Mauricio Pochettino, chose to go for him, and two days before the beginning of the World Cup they announce it".

Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale is a long time Manchester United transfer target, so today's headline news emerging from the Santiago Bernabeu has naturally invited more speculation about his future.

"My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you", De Gea, who is on national team duties with Spain told reporters. They also play Morocco and Iran in the group stages.

Lopetegui will take the reigns after coaching Spain in the World Cup, with the 51-year-old agreeing a three-year deal with the La Liga side.

Real Madrid have confirmed current Spain head coach Julen Lopetegui will take over at European champions after 2018 FIFA World Cup.

That debate generally focuses on Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who has led Los Blancos to three straight Champions League titles.

Spain are the only team in Russian Federation who have remained undefeated from Euro 2016 to the World Cup.

However, they have now made a decision to appoint Lopetegui, who is currently concentrating on managing Spain in Russian Federation.
