Real could look to Bayern boss to replace Chelsea-bound Mourinho.
Real Madrid are considering a move for Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes to replace Jose Mourinho, according to talkSPORT.
The German manager had hinted that he would be considering retirement after it was announced that former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has been put in place to take over at Bayern next season.
The 68-year-old has overseen one of the most successful seasons in Bayern’s great history this season, leading them to the Bundesliga title in record time, and also booking his side a place in the Champions League final at Wembley, where they will be favourites to beat rivals Borussia Dortmund.
Heynckes has had a previous spell at Real Madrid, spending just one season with the club in 1997/98, where we won the Champions League but was harshly sacked for only finishing fourth in La Liga.
The Spanish giants have endured a difficult time this year, losing out on the title to rivals Barcelona, and are prepared to let current manager Mourinho leave the club, which should see the Portuguese tactician take over at Chelsea.
They had lined up PSG’s Carlo Ancelotti as Mourinho’s replacement, but the French club have blocked the move, leading them to consider Heynckes as an alternative. However, it remains to be seen whether he will want to return to the club that was so impatient with him in his last spell in charge.
