Leonardo has rejected speculation linking himself with a return to Internazionale but has reiterated his desire to return to coaching.

The former Brazil international was sporting director at Paris Saint-Germain last season but plans to become a manager again ahead of the next campaign.

The 44-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport that he has matured following his experiences in France and Italy.

Leonardo said: “I’ve matured through several experiences, including Milan, Inter and PSG.

“I think I have picked up enough information and I shall create my way of being a coach. In Serie A? I do not know, I’m very open to new ideas.

“Of course I am really very close to Italy, but at a working level there are many things to consider.”

Leonardo managed Inter Milan for six months in the 2010/11 season and enjoyed huge success initially before going on to win the Coppa Italia with the Nerazzurri.

The Brazilian has been linked with a return to the Inter with current boss Walter Mazzarri going through a difficult time, however Leonardo has ruled a return out, for the time being anyway.

He added: “I do not think Inter are looking for a new coach right now - Inter know that I am very attached to Massimo Moratti and I believe that the new President wants to create a new way of managing the club.

“It is a moment of transition, but I do not believe that Walter Mazzarri is at risk.”
