One of the latest transfer rumours has T-Mobile's Matthias Kessler signing with CSC. The Danish newspaper Politiken says that T-Mobile told the 26 year-old Kessler that his financial demands were too high, and that they wouldn't agree to them. However, the paper also notes that CSC wouldn't necessarily offer as much money as Kessler is seeking, but could offer him new challenges and opportunities instead. T-Mobile spokesman Luuc Eisenga says there is no truth in the story, and that Kessler and Olaf Ludwig will sit down to negotiate after the Tour.
Other transfer rumours affecting T-Mobile have Alexandre Vinokourov going to either Discovery Channel or Cofidis, and Erik Zabel to Phonak (with one rumour calling that "99% certain").
