Purito tiene ya apalabradpo un contrato con un equipo Wolrd Tour para este año y dos más. Como es lógico, hasta que no esté confirmada la salida del Katusha, los portavoces de todos los equipos están negando los contactos con el corredor catalán.
The article suggest he is going to a WT team who has denied the rumours

Couldn't it be the move itself that's being denied rather than the specific team?

Because: Argos Lampre FTW.

Agreed, he'd be on a good team but would he get the GT support due to the sprinters on that team?

Astana is probably the only team that could dish out the money for him and Moreno while having enough other domestiques to be able to support them in the mountains.

Vacansoleil could be an OK fit for him as well. But how are they off financially?

He'd have to be nuts to go to Argos or, say Greenedge, but yet again he doesn't really have that much choice, must take what he could to try and salvage this season (his career on a broader scale really)

Don't think so.
Too much conflict with Valverde.

I'd think it would take alot longer than one season for Purito to get the required support from Argos to be in for a shot of podium at the tour.

But they have hardly any mountain support now that Capecchi and Szmyd have left. I don't think it would be a good move for Purito, unless Basso becomes his superdomestique or something.
