He can't be that bad, the performance he made on this Tour edition. A below average rider in peloton will do better.

Hence hope they figure out what the real reasons are and address them appropriately. Aru should be peaking now, considering age, watching him like that is painful.

I agree, that was not just "I am in bad shape", looked like medical problems not yet found / adressed properly.
 
At the end of stage 12 in 2017 TDF he was in yellow jersey, after outclimbing Froome on Planche des Blles Filles and Peyragudes. He was a Vuelta winner, and had 2 Giro podiums as well. He was a proven GT rider. 3 years after, he may not even have a contract. How did it go so bad? Shocking.

Well there was really no other option on the table after the way he abandoned the Tour and Saronni's statements.
As for next year, there are colossal question marks on him as a professional rider at this point. I struggle to think of a WT team that would take a flyer on him even at a tenth of his current salary.
An Italian PCT team is still the most probable solution, but even at that level they will want some sort of reassurances on his health and current shape.
 
There is something wrong with him. He sometimes shows sparks of greatness and then all of a sudden he disappears!
Of course his health problems must have had big impact, but I have a feeling that there probably is a lot of problems for him on the mental aspect also. And of course, the could possibly be issues that shall not be discussed here, but rather in the clinic.
