Lopetegui, the current Spain manager, was announced as Zinedine Zidane's successor on Tuesday, just two days before the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 51-year-old took charge of Spain after Euro 2016 - and signed a new extension until 2020 just last month - but the appointment means the impending World Cup in Russian Federation will be his only major tournament in charge of the national team.

If Spain fail to impress at the World Cup, then Lopetegui will head to Real Madrid under a cloud that will make an already difficult job even harder.

"Real Madrid CF announces that Julen Lopetegui will coach the first team for the next three seasons".

"He will join the club after the participation of the Spanish team in the World Cup, after two years leading the national team".

He has agreed a three-year deal with the European champions and will officially take charge after the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Category 3 Hurricane Bud heads north off Mexico
The NHC said, with maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour, Bud is now moving northwest at about seven miles per hour. Southwestern Mexico should expect several inches of rainfall from Bud, with the possibility of ten inches in certain areas.

He replaces Zinedine Zidane, who shockingly and abruptly left the club on the final day of last month.

Real, who are now without a manager following Zinedine Zidane's shock departure earlier this month, are ready for a summer shake-up.

In the meantime, Madrid may have to wait until mid-July before they can begin to work with their new coach - which is extremely late in terms of planning transfers and shaping the squad in time for the start of next season.

That's according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague who admits he was surprised by the news.

Real Madrid were keen on appointing Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, but were put off by the hefty fee they would have had to pay for the Argentine after he recently signed a five year contract.

"It has taken about two weeks, but it's a recognised name, they know what he's bringing, and I do think the fans will be happy". Spain will face Iran and Morocco in Group B after the challenge of Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in their opener on Friday.
