Milan have reportedly agreed terms with Luis Campos for the Lille sporting director to replace Leonardo.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, an agreement between Milan and Campos was reached a few days ago.
The newspaper adds another meeting will take place next week, where the Rossoneri will formalise his appointment.
The Portuguese has been credited with Lille’s revival as a force in Ligue 1 this season thanks to his work in the transfer market.
La Gazzetta also dubs him ‘the king of capital gains’ after helping Monaco turn profits with the likes of Thomas Lemar, Fabinho and Tiemoue Bakayoko.
As for Leonardo, the publication expects his exit from San Siro to follow Milan’s final Serie A game against SPAL on Sunday.
The Brazilian has found himself in the firing line after a season that has seen the Diavolo struggle to secure a top-four finish.
