With Heynckes set to replace Ancelotti in the dugout, who are the winners and losers of his appointment?

Borussia Dortmund's Thomas Tuchel was considered, as was Julian Nagelsmann from Hoffenheim.

Although he will be firmly established as the elder statesman of Europe's elite, Heynckes will have some way to go to become the Bundesliga's most senior manager.

Heynckes, who also led Real Madrid to the UCL title and coached Benfica, Athletic Bilbao and a string of Bundesliga clubs, has not worked since 2013.

The club has not confirmed the report.

Arjen Robben criticised the Italian's lazy approach to training sessions.

Heynckes arrived for his third spell in the summer of 2011, initially memorable for the wrong reasons with three second-place finishes, including a 2012 Champions League final defeat on penalties in their own backyard against Chelsea.

And it seems the German giants have found the right man. However, the fans in Munich are hard to please.

But in January 2013, Bayern revealed Heynckes would be retiring at the end of the season and replaced by Pep Guardiola.

"We have to recognise this".

The oldest manager in Serie A, Delneri has spent almost all of his career, bar a short stint with Porto, in the Italian leagues.
