Milan to replace Leonardo?

Several sources claim Milan director Leonardo is among several figures who will be replaced this summer by CEO Ivan Gazidis.

The Rossoneri are struggling to snatch fourth place from Atalanta, with reports in the Corriere dello Sport that they could even take a plea bargain with UEFA over Financial Fair Play violations, accepting a season out of continental competition if they only qualify for the Europa League.

According to Sky Sport Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport this afternoon, Leonardo’s future is nowhere near secure and he is increasingly likely to leave at the end of this term.

It’s suggested he has a job offer from the Brazilian Football Federation to replace Edu Gaspar, who is heading towards Arsenal.

Leo would be a co-ordinator for the various Brazilian national levels and academies.

The Corriere dello Sport points to current Lazio director of sport Igli Tare as a potential Milan addition.

Leonardo isn’t the only one who could be moving on, as it’s reported Gazidis wants a complete renovation of the squad and backroom staff, including Coach Gennaro Gattuso and even the head of marketing.
