Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes rubbishes Real Madrid links
Jupp Heynckes’ huge success at Bayern Munich and his impending exit from the club at the end of the season has attracted a lot of attention from top notch European clubs, who are in search for a new manager. Real Madrid and Chelsea are two clubs who have been linked to Jupp Heynckes in the past week.
Rife rumors suggest Jupp Heynckes will replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid at the end of the season. Meanwhile, Jupp Heynckes insists there is no truth to this tale and that he hasn’t decided about his next move just yet.
Since Jose Mourinho is expected to return to Chelsea this summer and Jupp Heynckes will be replaced by former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola, the German boss is hot-favorite to arrive at the helm of Real Madrid.
“Madrid have not been in contact with me,” Jupp Heynckes told Spanish newspaper Marca. “On May 9 I turn 68, I think I should be thinking about taking a break.”
Jupp Heynckes could be planning to end his managerial career on a high note. Nonetheless, Jupp Heynckes does seem to have the opportunity to enter the glorious Premier League where Chelsea are in search of finding a new boss for Stamford Bridge.
Interim manager Rafael Benitez is set to leave the club at the end of the season, which means the London hotseat will be open for interviews once again. Jose Mourinho is expected to make an astonishing return to Chelsea, but there is no strong evidence to support that theory.
Jupp Heynckes looks set to lead Bayern Munich to a treble in his final season. Bayern Munich, who won the Bundesliga title ages ago, are already in the Champions League final and are scheduled for DFB Pokal final against Stuttgart.
Jupp Heynckes is expected to carve his name into history before leaving Bayern Munich and with such fame and success it’s hard not to fathom the German boss at some other big club.
