Sven-Goran Eriksson could join Manchester City

Although Sven-Goran Eriksson has not yet officially agreed to join Manchester City, it remains a  possibility.

Sven-Goran Eriksson could join Manchester City Eriksson met yesterday Thaksin Shinawatra, the prospective new owner of Manchester City, in London to discuss the future of the 59-year old Swede. Following lengthy negotiations between the two, the rumours are that Eriksson will be publicly introduced to Manchester City at the end of this week. A 3-year contract, that is believed to be worth around £2.5 million per year, could be signed by Eriksson, if all terms have been agreed upon by both sides.

 Although earlier this year, Sven-Goran Eriksson dismissed speculations that he will take a job with City, in recent appearances he made it clear, that he is ready to return to club management, and is anxious to restore a reputation lost, while he was in charge of the national team.

 According to Manchester City, the club will remain in talks with Blackburn's Mark Hughes and Sevilla's Juande Ramos until Eriksson officially signs the papers.

 Thaksin Shinawatra is closing £81.6 million buy-out of Manchester City, even though over £1 billion of his assets have been frozen by the Thailand's authorities and he is under investigation for corruption in his homeland. Thaksin may not be in a position to formally appoint his manager until he has acquired 75% of the club and can take the company off the stock exchange, a process that could take up to three weeks.
