Sven-Goran Eriksson On Verge of Becoming New Manchester City Manager

Eriksson is reportedly set to become the new manager at the Eastlands if Thai businessman and deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's $237 million US takeover bid goes through. The former England manager has been linked with the Manchester City job since the dismissal of Stuart Pearce a day after the Premiership season ended and now has to be the favorite for the position after Claudio Ranieri joined Juventus.

However, according to the Sunday Mirror, Eriksson's appointment is predicated solely on Shinawatra's takeover. Negotiations are still ongoing although Shinawatra recently had $2.77 billion US of assets frozen by the military government that deposed him.
