Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes allegedly cooperated in 2005 with a German doctor, Sddeutsche Zeitung reported according to an article in sportswereld.be Saturday.

A German police source reported Fuentes maintained links with a doctor in Bad Sachsa in Central Germany; however an official spokesperson for the German police could not confirm the information. The same article reported that transfusions were carried out for the 2005 Tour de France in Hannover, and that Ivan Basso was one of the beneficiaries. Basso pleaded guilty to attempted doping in the spring soon after withdrawing from Team Discovery for personal reasons.
