Leonardo on Ibra, Paqueta and Gigio

Leonardo shrugged off Zlatan Ibrahimovic rumours, called Lucas Paqueta “a lad with great promise” and said Gianluigi Donnarumma needs to be more consistent.

There have been multiple reports of a possible return to San Siro for Ibrahimovic in January, especially as the LA Galaxy missed out on the MLS post season with a dramatic Decision Day collapse.

“I think that talking about the transfer market now is a bit out of turn,” Leonardo told RMC Sport.

Leonardo: 'Milan have variables'

Leonardo reassures Milan fans that they are on the right track with Gennaro Gattuso, but the 4-4-2 system is adjustable in future.

The director general sat down with RMC Sport at the Golden Foot awards to discuss the rebuilding of a club that went from Silvio Berlusconi to Yonghong Li and now Elliott Management.

“This is a less victorious moment in the history of Milan, but over 120 years this club has had more ups than downs, so the tendency should point upwards,” said Leonardo.

Donadoni to replace Gattuso at Milan?
