Former Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes has denied speculation linking him with the vacant managerial post at Real Madrid according to Goal.com.

Heynckes star has never been higher after he led Bayern to a historic treble last season, that included memorable victories against Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund on their way to Champions League glory.

But Heynckes has found himself out of a job, despite bringing such silverware to the club, as the Bavarian giants prepare to welcome former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola to the club.

That has prompted speculation that Heynckes could find himself employed in the Spanish capital. Real are in the market for a new manager since deciding to part ways with Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho last week.

It is thought that the club’s number one target had been PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti but the Ligue 1 champions are remaining resolute in their determination to hold on to the Italian boss.

That was thought to have paved the way for Heynckes arrival at Real but the German manager has insisted he has no intention of taking charge at Madrid.

While denying that he was retiring on a permanent basis, Heynckes did reveal that he was looking forward to some time away from the game.
