Real, who are now without a manager following Zinedine Zidane's shock departure earlier this month, are ready for a summer shake-up.
Guillem Balague says Julen Lopetegui's appointment as Real Madrid manager came as a surprise, but insists fans will be happy.
The unexpected announcement comes shortly after Lopetegui extended his contract as Spain coach until 2020 in what was a pre-World Cup boost for one of the tournament favourites.
The search to replace Zinedine Zidane, who left after guiding Real to a third-straight Champions League title, lasted nearly two weeks, with Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp among the names reportedly in the frame.
Zinedine Zidane, who led the club to three successive Champions League titles, stepped down in May, saying the club needs "a different voice".

Spain are the only team in Russian Federation who have remained undefeated from Euro 2016 to the World Cup.
Lopetegui has endured a mixed managerial career thus far, but has history with Los Blancos, having managed the club's B team between 2008 and 2009. He has previously coached Spain's youth sides and had two years in charge of Porto.
As for Ronaldo's future with Real Madrid, it's possible he never plays for Lopetegui at all.
