Leonardo’s appointment as Milan’s new general manager is reportedly imminent, while the club have ‘already identified’ their new CEO.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, Leonardo reached an agreement with Milan ‘in the last few hours’.

The Brazilian scored 30 goals in 124 appearances for the Rossoneri over two stints as a player, winning a Scudetto and Coppa Italia, as well as the 1994 World Cup with his country.

He then returned to San Siro after his retirement, first as a technical director and then Coach for the 2009-10 campaign, guiding the Diavolo to third in Serie A.

However, the 48-year-old controversially moved to arch-rivals Inter in December 2010, guiding them to a Coppa before stepping down seven months later.

He has since spent time as Paris Saint-Germain’s sporting director and Coach of Turkish side Antalyaspor.

Furthermore, an official statement released by the Rossoneri after their board meeting confirmed Marco Fassone’s successor, though unnamed, had already been earmarked, with Arsenal’s Ivan Gazidis heavily tipped for the role.

New President Paolo Scaroni will assume those duties on an interim basis until an appointment is made.
