Former Juventus, Roma and AC Milan manager Fabio Capello is set to hold talks with the Football Association to become the new England manager.

Confirmation of Jose Mourinho´s withdrawal from the race to succeed Steve McClaren has paved the way for Capello to take the job, providing he backs up a publicly-stated desire to lead England back to the pinnacle of the international game in face-to-face meetings with FA chief executive Brian Barwick.

While the pair, and FA director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking, have yet to meet, talks have taken place with Capello´s advisors. It is anticipated the 61-year-old will fly into London at some point within the next 48 hours and, although Martin O´Neill, Marcello Lippi and Jurgen Klinsmann continue to be discussed, it now appears inevitable Capello will get the job.
