Thaksin Shinawatra hopes to have a new Manchester City manager in place inside the next week - and admits he has spoken to Sven-Goran Eriksson.

The former England coach would appear to be the front-runner now Shinawatra has a controlling interest in the club - Shinawatra today made a formal £81.6million offer and the board have recommended shareholders to accept it.

Shinawatra told Sky Sports News: "Sven-Goran Eriksson is one of the names that my advisor told me about. He has a very good reputation and he is a very capable coach. I´ve met him once - probably last week maybe."
