Leonardo is reportedly ‘a step away’ from returning to Milan as their general manager.
According to Sport Mediaset, Leonardo is currently locked in talks with Milan, making him ‘very close’ to rejoining the club for a fourth spell, despite the Curva Sud opposing his appointment.
The Brazilian scored 30 goals in 124 appearances for the Rossoneri over two stints as a player, winning a Scudetto and Coppa Italia, as well as the 1994 World Cup with his country.
He then returned to San Siro after his retirement, first as a technical director and then Coach for the 2009-10 campaign, guiding the Diavolo to third in Serie A.
However, the 48-year-old controversially moved to arch-rivals Inter in December 2010, guiding them to a Coppa before stepping down seven months later.
He has since spent time as Paris Saint-Germain’s sporting director and Coach of Turkish side Antalyaspor.
