The Portuguese club's president, Jorge Pinto da Costa, announced the appointment on Tuesday and did not provide financial details.

Lopetegui, aged 47, has in recent years been in charge of Spain's national youth teams. He led the under-19 and under-21 teams to European titles in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

Coach Paulo Fonseca left the defending Portuguese champions in March after a string of poor results, including Porto's first home league defeat in more than five years. B team coach Luis Castro temporarily took charge.

With one round to play, Porto are third in the league, 16 points behind champions Benfica.

Porto have won the Portuguese title eight times in the last 10 years.
