Paris Saint-Germain are seen as in advanced talks with Leonardo to bring him back to the club as sporting director.
The former Milan and Inter Coach worked in the position for two years before resigning last summer after being handed a 13-month ban for barging a match official.
Whilst his appeal against that decision has been successful and only ratification in the Administrative Court of Paris awaits, speculation is that a return to his old role is on the cards.
The 44-year-old has been vocal in recent weeks of his desire to return to a coaching role within the game, but the Gazzetta dello Sport report that his failure to find such a project has him openly considering this possibility too.
