Carlo Tovecchio is set to return from a 10-year layoff with the Rossoneri to take over as the club’s president.
The veteran has been on the brink of the sack after a disastrous start to the Serie A season, and it is understood the 54-year-old is set for a new contract, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Tovecchie, who was the sporting director of Inter Milan between 1994 and 2005, will take over at the San Siro after he has served out the remainder of his contract at the club.
He was sacked after six years on the job last October.
Tavecchie took over the reins of Inter in 2014, succeeding Paolo Di Canio as coach after the latter had a fall-out with the club owner, the family-run Parma.
Tarecchio has enjoyed a string of successes over his 15 years in charge of Inter.
In 2015, the Rossonas won the Scudetto, and he took over a club that had won just once in the previous six seasons, beating AC Milan in the final of the Coppa Italia in March 2018.
In 2017, he led the Nerazzurri to their first Serie A title since 2009, and in 2018 they reached the Champions League final for the first time in their history.
However, the current season has been marred by a string and a half of injuries, with Inter’s squad missing five players, including the club captain Leonardo Bonucci, in the run-up to the quarter-finals.
