After returning to the club last summer, Leonardo is set to leave Milan once again. The Brazilian sporting director will turn in his resignation tomorrow, at the basis of this decision is the fact that he has a different vision than executive director Ivan Gazidis, who is determined to build a young team who can increase their value rather than adding some veterans to the squad.
Once the news of Leonardo’s departure becomes official, Milan is expected to focus on Lille’s Luis Campos to be their outside consultant on transfer moves while maintaining his role at the French club. This would leave Milan with the need to find a formal replacement to Leonardo, the rossoneri appear willing to offer this role to Paolo Maldini, who is however also leaning towards leaving Milan, although there are still margins for him to stay. Milan is ready to have another significant change at the director level.
