Snippet from an Interview with Humo.
HUMO: There are big teams that want to seduce you with a big money contract, are you aware of that?
De Lie: Yes. That's all well and good, but I still have a contract with Lotto-Dstny for 2 years. I feel good here. The team is changing a lot and I'm sure that the new approach will work.
HUMO: Do you prefer you current team over a team like UAE Team Emirates? There are rumours that it's especially them who want you.
De Lie: I am not looking for a transfer, no. When you're with one of those big teams, with their seemingly unlimited budgets, you don't find challenges anymore. I prefer a team like Lotto Dstny, a team that's reinventing themselves. I believe in the project and want to play a decisive role it.
Good signs for Lotto I would say but pls just don't end up at UAE. I would understand QS, but he won't ever have a team fully committed to him at UAE.
