Leonardo Araujo is ready to return to Milan as the man in charge of the technical area, so it remains to be seen what this means for Massimo Mirabelli.
The new Milan is taking shape: Marco Fassone was removed from his role as the club CEO, and until a new one is appointed (Umberto Gandini and Ivan Gazidis are the man candidates), Paolo Scaroni, the new President of Milan, will act as the Managing Director.
There are also changes upcoming in the area of the technical zone. And according to Sky Italia’s Peppe Di Stefano, Leonardo Araujo is ready to return to the club as the director responsible for the technical area of Milan.
Leonardo is an ex-Milan player, director and coach, but he famously left the club to go coach Inter in 2010. The Curva Sud had released a statement stating that they do not want the Brazilian back as he ‘betrayed’ the Rossoneri colors and ‘spat’ on them, but Elliott see him as the right man.
Di Stefano believes that in the last hour a final agreement was reached between Milan and Leonardo, who worked as a director of Paris Saint-Germain from 2011 to 2013. Sky claims that this does not necessarily mean that Massimiliano Mirabelli will immediately leave the club; he could stay as a consultant for the current transfer market, as he’s already begun a string of negotiations.
The official announcement should arrive sometimes in the next week. Once Leonardo is finally back, Milan will finally be able to move in the transfer market, which closes in Italy on August 17th.
