Former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has issued Manchester City with an invitation to contact him over their managerial vacancy.
Eriksson is keen to get back into football after a year out
Eriksson is seeking a return to the game after taking a year out following his departure from the England post last summer.
The 59-year-old told the Manchester Evening News: "It would be an honour for me to be Manchester City's manager.
"If they indicated they're interested in me of course I would talk to them."
City sacked Stuart Pearce the day after the end of the Premiership season, and are also in the process of a £100m takeover by former Thailand Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
Eriksson added: "Manchester City is an established club with great potential.
"Every time I visited the club I was struck by the passion of the fans and made to feel welcome."
Despite Eriksson's invitation, former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri remains favourite for the post if the takeover is completed.
Eriksson has been linked with several posts since his England departure, including Newcastle.
The Swede has continued to be paid by the Football Association and hinted that he would like the opportunity to coach a top English club.
