The recent Champions League winners have named Spain's national team coach Julen Lopetegui as their new manager, with the 51-year-old to join the club after the upcoming World Cup.

Spain manager Julen Lopetegui will take over as Real Madrid manager following the conclusion of the World Cup in Russian Federation, the club have confirmed.

Lopetegui will take over a Real Madrid side who have dominated in Europe but finished a distant 17 points behind champions Barcelona in La Liga last season.

Spain national team manager Julen Lopetegui is headed to the Bernabeu.

Lopetegui will take over Zidane's duties after the World Cup.

"You have to be focused on having a good World Cup - we are all good".


Zidane's shock departure came after he had guided Madrid to a third straight Champions League title.

United No 1, De Gea is a long-term target for Real, with the Spanish giants said to be keen on making a mammoth bid for the Spain No 1.

He went on to coach Porto before succeeding Vicente del Bosque, who had overseen Spain's triumphs at the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 but had also been in charge for the disappointing group-stage exit at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Whatever did happen, the timing is unfortunate for La Roja as they aim for World Cup glory and also for Los Blancos in their building for the 2018-19 season, while question marks over the coach's suitability for such a top job also persist.

In May, he signed a two-year extension to remain as Spain coach until 2020 but the call of Madrid has proved stronger.

Time will tell, just as it did with Zidane, but right now, the appointment of Lopetegui looks like a risky one for both Madrid and Spain.
