Real Madrid Appoint Surprise Choice As New Manager

This was because some of the Real Madrid members of the Spanish squad already knew about Lopetegui's imminent appointment at the club.

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.

"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.

The Slovenia global is now being watched by Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp keen on signing a new No 1 this summer, however Real are favourites to complete the deal.

"After that, it was a case of guessing for us".

Real Madrid have won La Liga just once in the last six years, which for a club of their stature and spending, is a poor return despite their European success.

According to the same story, Zinedine Zidane's decision to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season has heightened Bale's chances of staying at the club.

Lopetegui succeeded 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.

And one of his first jobs as new manager will be to sort out Real's transfer plans.

"I didn't stop to want to take the team of France". He is a former worldwide player and also likes his teams to play attractive football. He had the suitcase ready to go, but Spain called.

The former Spain worldwide played 66 games for his country and since becoming a coach he has been with the Real Madrid youth team, Rayo Vallecano, Getafe, Sevilla, Marseille and Malaga.
