Heynckes set for Spain move - report

Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes is set for a shock summer return to Spain this summer to manage Barcelona, according to German newspaper TZ.

Heynckes, 67, will leave Bayern at the end of a record-breaking season to make way for former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.

On Saturday, Munich paper TZ reported the former Real Madrid coach could incredibly join Guardiola's former club.

Current Barca coach Tito Vilanova stressed on Friday that he feels fit and able to continue as coach for next season, during his first press conference in three months.

"I did not come here before due to secondary effects, but each day I feel better. I have the strength and motivation to continue next season," Vilanova, who, earlier this year received cancer treatment in New York, explained. "In no moment have I thought of stepping down. Football is my life."

But TZ reports that Barcelona have a Plan B in case Vilanova needs to step down for health reasons.

According to information from the Barcelona board room it involves either Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini or Heynckes, with the newspaper claiming the Catalans have been eyeing the veteran German for a long time.

During a press conference on Friday, Heynckes, who has also been briefly linked with a return to one of his former La Liga clubs Real Madrid and Atletico Bilbao commented on his future plans.

"You don't really believe I will discuss what I will be up to after June 30 with you," he told the press. "There is a lot of noise in the press right now. I know what I will be doing. Have known it for quite some time."
