Del Bosque in talks over Spanish national job
MADRID, July 4 (Reuters) - Spain's football federation (RFEF) have had talks with former Real Madrid coach Vicente del Bosque in their search for a successor to Luis Aragones as national coach of the European champions.
'The board of the RFEF is working to find a coach and I can confirm that we have had talks with Del Bosque,' Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Angel Maria Villar told Radio Marca on Friday.
Local media have reported that Del Bosque, who led Real to two Champions Leagues titles and two Spanish championships, has already reached a verbal agreement with the federation and is likely to be appointed to the post in the next two weeks.
Aragones, who will turn 70 later this month, stepped down after leading Spain to victory at Euro 2008, their first major title in 44 years.
He said the federation had not offered him the chance to extend his contract.
Aragones travelled to Istanbul on Thursday to sign a two-year deal to coach Turkish side Fenerbahce.
