Real Madrid appoints new boss — BREAKING

Real Madrid appoints new boss — BREAKING”

The official club announcement reads that "Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of the first team during the next three seasons".

Lopetegui was appointed Spain coach in 2016.

United star, De Gea has been vocal on his future in recent weeks, with the Spain international revealing he's fully focused on the World Cup in Russia.

He has previously coached Spain's youth sides and had two years in charge of Porto. Lopetegui favors his adversary, though.

He was sacked after just 10 games in charge, and after a spell away from management, he took up a coaching role with Real Madrid Castilla.

While this is recognition of how well he has played in the past few years, it is also a worrying reminder of the situation the club has been in since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

However, both Tottenham and PSG have also been linked with the forward. The £80 million transfer fee, which was a world record at the time, could go down as one of the biggest bargains given all he has helped them achieve since.

The man who will guide Spain at the World Cup has been named as Zinedine Zidane's successor at Real Madrid.

After the tournament, Spain will have to find a new boss ahead of the new UEFA Nations League, in which they will open against England and Croatia in September.

His decision to quit as Madrid coach suddenly left the Spanish giants in limbo.

He has signed a three-year contract with Real Madrid, keeping him at the club until 2021.

"I don't know what I'm going to do", the 45-year-old added.

It seemed nobody wanted the job but Lopetegui has leapt in to take the reins from next season onwards. "We want it to bring back a second title". The promise of world-class signings? Have your say in the comments section below.

Lopetegui has worked with Spain U19, U20 and U21s, so Madrid will hope he can bring some younger players through.
