The former Spain global 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.

But that is no longer the case after Real Madrid offered him a three-year-contract on Tuesday agreeing to pay the Spanish FA £1.75m in compensation.

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

Lopetegui will officially take over at Los Blancos after the World Cup.

It remains to be seen if he will head to Real as a World Cup victor, though Spain's squad is stocked with exciting talent.

In addition, he remains something of an unknown quantity as a coach.

Before he took over as Spain boss, Lopetegui was Porto manager for two years. At the very highest level, however, he is still somewhat untried.

Lopetegui was appointed to the role in the wake of Spain's poor showing at Euro 2016 in France when they were eliminated in the last 16, losing 2-0 to Italy.

A former goalkeeper, Lopetegui made one senior appearance for Real Madrid but played 107 matches for Logrones.
