Brazilian considers resignation after ban comes into force.
PSG director Leonardo may step down from his position, but only once he has completed the signing of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported.
The Brazilian has been in his position for over two years, but faces a lengthy ban until June after shoulder barging a Ligue 1 referee in the tunnel after a game against Valenciennes last season.
As a result, it is understood that he is considering stepping down from his role at the French club, but only after he has completed the summer transfer business.
The former Inter boss has been known to lead an assault on Serie A since his arrival in Paris, spending a staggering €250m on players plying their trade in Italy.
That list includes the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Marco Verratti, Salvatore Sirigu, Thiago Motta and Jeremy Menez.
His next mission is to complete a deal for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, and it is understood that the Ligue 1 champions are ready to offer his €63m release clause fee.
They are expected to beat off competition from Premier League outfit Chelsea, who were also strongly linked with the Uruguayan international this summer, but were not willing to pay the hefty release clause fee.
As a result, Leonardo is likely to part with a gift, after what has been a remarkable turnaround for the Parisians since their takeover.
However, his decision is still unclear at this stage, but he believes he may be acting in the best interests of the club if he were to step aside.
