Purito will probably stay if Katusha gets their Pro-conti license, the team is one of the best out there. They'll still ride everything Purito wants to participate in. And who's got the money for Purito this late into the offseason? And it certainly isn't Sky. Maybe Euskaltel could sell some team buses to get him ?

If BMC did not already have Gilbert I would say they would be interested. Maybe Vaconsoleil or Greenedge but money would be the issue of course. Hard to see a team that could take him for similar money he was getting at Katusha. He will have to be prepared to take a pay cut it seems. Trouble is many of the bigger teams already have a star rider for the hilly classics and GC. He will probably stay put and hope for wildcards in the important races.

And, probably, they don't have the money too.

Purito would never go to rabobank .Perhaps if he leaves Katusha he heads back to Unzue and sharing leadership with Valverde in Vuelta.
