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

Madrid won a third consecutive Champions League title by beating Liverpool in last month's final in Kiev, becoming the first team to achieve that feat in more than 40 years.

Lopetegui and the Spain squad are now at their training base in the southern Russian city of Krasnodar.

Real Madrid appoint Spain boss Julen Lopetegui as the club's new head coach on a three-year contract.

Diario Gol added that Ramos wants Real to complete the controversial deal and sign Oblak from their arch rivals.

Spain are among the favourites to win the World Cup after an nearly flawless qualifying campaign, and he will be hoping that the announcement does not overly unsettle his squad just before the competition gets under way.


"Julen Lopetegui will be the coach of Real Madrid after tthe 2018 World Cup", the club announced on their official website on Tuesday.

Lopetegui, 51, has been in charge of the Spanish national team since July 2016, when he took the reins following the European Championship in France.

As a player Lopetegui was a goalkeeper who spent spells as a backup at both Madrid and Barcelona, also playing for Rayo Vallecano and CD Logrones.

Lopetegui will put to pen to paper on a three-year deal at the Bernabéu running until 2021, the club confirmed.

"It has been surprising for everybody, but to be honest the three names who had been linked - Pochetitno, Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte - for different reasons they didn't fit the agenda", Balague said.
