Real Madrid name new head coach

And it is a risky move for both club and country.

However, following the departure of Zidane - who left the club after lifting his third successive Champions League trophy - according to the Independent, Bale is now reconsidering his options and will wait to see who Florentino Perez appoints this summer.

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.

The Spanish giants announced that the current Spanish national team boss Julen Lopetegui will take up the role at the Bernabeu after his commitment with them ends after this summer's World Cup in 2018.

Lopetegui will officially take over at Los Blancos after the World Cup. It is hardly the ideal preparation for a World Cup.

The France legend subsequently took the decision to step down, and a replacement has now been found, though expectations are unlikely to be any lower.

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

Lopetegui has put together a record of 14 wins and six draws from his 20 games in charge of Spain, with the former goalkeeper having previously coached at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 levels.

He went on to coach Porto before succeeding 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.

On Tuesday afternoon, Madrid unexpectedly announced that Lopetegui will be the man to replace Zidane following the conclusion of Spain's World Cup campaign.

Lopetegui is a surprise appointment as he was not one of the names widely touted to be Zidane's replacement.
