Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has revealed Leonardo could leave the San Siro this summer amid reports the Brazilian wants to join Paris Saint Germain.
Leonardo has been linked with the sporting director role at PSG, with Gazzetta dello Sport claiming the Brazilian held talks in Doha with executives from Qatar Sports Investments, which owns a 70% share of the French Ligue 1 club.
Inter chief Moratti initially denied the rumours, but has now made a U-turn and confirmed Leonardo could be on his way out after just six months in charge.
"Leonardo has coached with so much willingness and passion. But it's certainly not his ambition for the future,'' Moratti told the club's website. "The best thing is that he follows his aim and that we look for a new coach. It could be that Leonardo changes his mind and so will we.''
On Tuesday, Moratti denied reports that Inter had approached Chile coach Marcelo Bielsa as a possible candidate to succeed Leonardo in the Nerazzurri hotseat. But he has now confirmed the club has been in touch with the former Argentina boss.
Moratti added: "I believe there has been a first contact with Bielsa, but not from me.''
Leonardo, who replaced sacked Rafael Benitez at the helm in December, led Inter to second-place in Serie A and won the Coppa Italia.
