Fans fear for David De Gea after Real Madrid's shock announcement

The Independent is reporting that the Spanish giants are in no rush to resolve the Wales international's situation despite the uncertainty about his future this summer.

Lopetegui's side qualified for the World Cup by topping their group with nine wins out of 10.

Speaking just three weeks ago after signing his new Spain contract, the former Porto boss said: "I'm grateful for the confidence placed in me and in my staff".

He has done well through the levels with Spain, he is doing well now, and even though they have stuttered in some of the World Cup warm-up games, the football being played by Spain has been fantastic.

Lopetegui will have his work cut out at Real Madrid, where standards are high and patience tends to be short with managers unless they deliver instant success.

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

The couple seemed to have a great time making videos of the wedding on their cellphones and chatting with his relatives. He was one of the groomsmen while his wife was a bridesmaid and his daughter a flower girl.

La Roja kick off their campaign against Portugal on Friday and this news will now dominate all the pre-match and pre-tournament talk in the Spain camp. It is hardly the ideal preparation for a World Cup.

Julen Lopetegui will take over as Real Madrid manager after the World Cup, the Bernabéu have announced.

"I didn't stop to want to take the team of France". Loves Ronaldo. Didn't like Bale playing ahead of Isco and Assensio.

The 51-year-old took over as Spain coach in 2016 following the retirement of Vicente Del Bosque.

Time will tell, just as it did with Zidane, but right now, the appointment of Lopetegui looks like a risky one for both Madrid and Spain.
