Berlin: Bayern Munich's out-going coach Jupp Heynckes has been linked to the Bavarians' Bundesliga rivals Schalke 04, according to reports in the German media on Monday.

With Bayern 15 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, Heynckes, 67, stands down after two years in charge of Munich at the end of the season and will be replaced by former Barcelona head coach Pep Guardiola on July 1.

Schalke appointed Jens Keller as coach in December after Huub Stevens was sacked for poor results, but things have not improved with the Royal Blues having had one win in their last 11 matches and are ninth in the league.
