Jupp Heynckes plays down reports that he could become the next manager of Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has insisted that he has received no contact from Real Madrid about becoming their new boss next season.

The German will be replaced by Pep Guardiola in his current post at the end of the campaign, with Los Blancos chief Jose Mourinho expected to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

However, Heynckes is adamant that he is not thinking about his next managerial step.

"Madrid have not been in contact with me," Heynckes told Spanish newspaper Marca. "On May 9 I turn 68, I think I should be thinking about taking a break."

Heynckes's Bayern side advanced to the Champions League final on Wednesday night after a 7-0 aggregate victory over Barcelona.
