Following reports on Belgian website Wieleruitslagen.be that Bjarne Riis' Team CSC had made a two million euro offer to Danilo DI Luca, the team's press relations manager Brian Nygaard told Cyclingnews there had been no contact between CSC and the Giro d'Italia champion, nor did they have any intention of signing him.

"We haven't negotiated with DI Luca, nor had the intention to do so," said Nygaard. "We have never had him in mind for the team, we haven't made any contact whatsoever with him nor his manager and thus: have never made any offers to DI Luca, to his manager, nor anyone else representing him."

Di Luca's contract with Liquigas ends this season but the 31 year-old has indicated in recent interviews that he would be happy to remain leader of the Italian squad.
