Leonardo to make PSG return?

Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting Leonardo will leave Milan on Monday and could return to Paris Saint-Germain.

The newspaper explains Leonardo’s position has ‘weakened’ at Milan after their failure to qualify for the Champions League, while his silence contradicts the club’s stance that there are no problems between him and CEO Ivan Gazidis.

The Brazilian was only appointed sporting director at San Siro last summer, as part of a new-look boardroom following Elliott Management’s takeover.

Milan to replace Leonardo?
