The finances for Roglic leaving don't make any sense tbh. If Jumbo are in a huge hole financially, they shouldn't have a leg to stand on to demand 5 mill.
ISP has a good chance. Maybe Froome will give up most of his salary to pay Roglic in exchange for dual leadership at the TdF
This would've been the ultimate RaboFail.Here's an interesting article on the current state of affairs re Rog's transfer & the situation at Jumbo: https://escapecollective.com/report...-buyout-clause-and-the-jumbo-merger-dominoes/
Jumbo want 5 million euros compensation. He has a 2 million euro salary. Jumbo has a 25 million (!) black hole in their finances.
It's all a bit desperate tbh & I think with a little bit of hindsight, someone should ask what in the name of hell Plugge was doing at Jumbo with their money in recent years, i.e. for example bringing in some high earners (van Baarle, Dennis, Benoot) last year. Bringing in Jorgensen for next year & also re-signing Vingegaard on a long term deal when none of this was future proof.
It's an incredible story & the consequences are going to be huge (like the total annihilation of Quick-Step, for starters). And of course Rog leaving his own team for a few reasons, i.e. one of which is because they're broke.
I'd prefer INEOS for him but Lidl would be great; anywhere but Movistar.It is going to bee Lidl - Trek . It is almost setteld now !
