A little while back I asked, “Anyone have the 3 mil € for Cancellara?” And the answer is, apparently, we will never know.
Rumors have been flying ever since Cancellara’s early abandonment of this years Veulta that Riis and Cancellara were parting ways. Bjarne has now confirmed that an agreement has been reached that will release Cancellara from his contract with Saxo one year ahead of schedule. There seems to be a high liklihood that Cancellara will now join the Schlecks – and other current Saxo Bank teammates – on the new Luxembourg team being formed. Another possibility that has been rumored in the works for Swiss time trial champion would be to join BMC – a Switzerland based team.
As will all transfer season rumors, it isn’t decided until the ink dries on the contract. And you should probably give it a few days after that too.
