Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is set to be named as Spain’s new manager, while former Valencia and Spain defender Carlos Marchena joins as Sporting Director.
The former world champions are seeking a replacement for Fernando Hierro who stepped down following his country’s disastrous showing at the World Cup.
Hierro took over two days before Spain’s opening game after Julen Lopetegui was sacked for agreeing to take over at Real Madrid after the tournament.
Quique Sanchez Flores, Michel, Roberto Martinez and Victor Sanchez del Amo have all been considered for the job but reports in Spain suggest Luis Enrique will be recommended by the Spanish FA president Luis Rubiales at a meeting on Monday morning.
The 48-year-old won two Liga titles, a Champions League and three Copa del Rey with Barca between 2014 and 2017.
He also scored 12 goals in 62 appearances for Spain as a player, representing his country at three World Cups and one European Championship.
