Footie manager Sven Goran Eriksson is set to meet his former partner Nancy Dell'Olio, as the pair attempt to solve a dispute over his 2.7 million-pound London flat.
Eriksson, 64, flew in from Thailand, where he is currently working, for a meeting with mediation solicitors, the Telegraph reported.
He wants her to move out of the two-bedroom home in Eaton Place, Belgravia, where neighbours include Lady Thatcher and Joan Collins.
Eriksson is believed to have allowed Dell'Olio, 50, to stay in the house rent-free for a year after they split in 2007.
But she insists that they had a verbal agreement that he would look after her financially and will only leave if they agree a financial settlement.
Dell'Olio is believed to have been served with papers to leave more than a year ago.
But she has steadfastly refused to move out of the stucco-fronted apartment in one of the capital's most exclusive areas.
Eriksson bought the flat in 2005 for just under 1 million pounds and is now believed to want to sell the property. (ANI)
