I bet the Chicken is negotiating with every possible sponsor about the prospect of getting J-Rod to his team

Or Lampre

Astana will be desirable-but unless Vino has some extra cash after the deal with Nibbs- I just don't see it possible at the moment.

Climbing domestiques, current riders have limited ambitions at the Tour, and the new sponsor Merida could no doubt find a few million to get the no. 1 rider on their bikes.

Not good for Cunego's Ardennes season though.

Cannondale doesnt make any sense.

If Cannondale has the money, they would have kept Nibali in first place.

Lampre, Astana are my obvious favorites.
