Sven-Goran Eriksson´s future prospects may have taken another twist after it was reported he has been approached by Portuguese side Benfica.

The Swede is expected to be sacked as Manchester City manager at the end of the season with owner Thaksin Shinawatra reportedly unhappy at the team´s recent form.

A delegation from Benfica including president Luis Felipe Vieira and captain Rui Costa, the club´s future sporting director, were filmed by Portuguese broadcaster SIC in a hotel in Manchester where the former England boss had also reportedly been staying.
