Man City boss Eriksson eyeing Chelsea job

The Guardian says Eriksson is waiting to see what happens to Avram Grant at Chelsea before he commits himself to Benfica, or any of the other clubs who have approached him, now that it is an open secret that he will shortly leave City.

Eriksson has been led to believe that he stands a good chance of getting the job at Stamford Bridge if Roman Abramovich decides to pay off Grant after the Champions League final later this month. Eriksson would prefer, if possible, to stay in England and his elaborate network of contacts, including some of the more powerful agents in the business, are working on his behalf. The Swede is fully aware about Grant's precarious position.

Eriksson is also keeping tabs on Roberto Mancini's situation at Inter Milan.
