Inter Milan Transfer Rumors: Leonardo Just Might Stay

All signs pointed toward Inter Milan coach Leonardo accepting the role of sporting director at Paris Saint-Germain, but the Brazilian was meant to hand over his resignation on Wednesday night. Come Thursday morning, it seems that Leonardo remains with the nerazzurri...thus far, anyway. Inter owner Massimo Moratti mentioned to Sky Sports Italia that, "things could stay exactly as they are."

Well, at the moment, things have stayed exactly as they are, although such stillness might be the calm before the storm rather than the pleasant tranquility after the thunder stops. It's well known that Leonardo wasn't fond of being a coach -- he'd rather have a bit more of a desk job, and sporting director seemed to suit him better. So why the reversal? Is it because talks with Marcelo Bielsa didn't go as expected? It appeared before that Biesla was being courted as a replacement, but perhaps it was Leo being nudged out the door in favor of the Chilean. 

Or perhaps it's just that the coaching/sporting director merry-go-round is moving on Italian time, and things will click into place shortly.
