The Giro d’Italia is leaving us with numerous news regarding the cyclist transfer market despite the fact that many of the movements are usually confirmed during the course of the Giro d’Italia.
The last of these rumors in the cycling market has Movistar as its protagonist, who has also recently been linked to a hypothetical return to Richard Carapaz’s team, That contract with Ineos ends this year.
According to the journalist from La Gazzetta dello Sport Ciro Scognamiglio Movistar would have expressed interest in signing the Spanish cyclist from Ineos Carlos Rodríguez, 21 years old, and this year he has already shone in races such as the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, the Vuelta a Andalucía and the Itzulia, where he won the demanding Mallabia stage.
The main obstacle for this transfer is that Movistar would have to pay a transfer to Ineos or Rodríguez decides to break his contract, since the Granada cyclist is linked to the British squad until 2023.
