Seems very unlikely when Caisse are ready to pay him 2mil/year. I think the fact that they're a spanish team weights more than what Lefevere can offer. Besides, the beaches are much better in Spain.

Caisse's roster is full. Even if they wanted Contador, they have no room/money for him.

Someone could say that Contador isn't even on the market, since he's under contract for next season with Astana.

If Alberto finds a way out from under his Astana contract, Caisse can find a way to get him on the roster.

Spot on there Z Man - if Bertie is freed, Caisse will bring on a second sponsor if necessary to fund him.

I like the Caisse fit - it excuses Valverde from the pressure of trying to win the Tour when he knows its not realistic. Let's him focus on one-day monuments, stage wins and the Vuelta where he is a genuine contender every time.
