Spaniard Francisco Mancebo, formally with Ag2R Prévoyance, has reportedly received an offer from Tinkoff Credit Systems. According to todociclismo.com, the rider from Ávila has been offered a two-year contract worth €600,000 a year.
Paco is currently negotiating with Ag2R Prévoyance to formalize the termination of his contract, a process that came about when the rider was linked to Operación Puerto. Last month the rider was given the green light by his federation to return to racing, thus clearing the way for contact negotiations.
The Italian professional continental team, backed by Russian millionaire Oleg Tinkov, has also stated their interests in Tyler Hamilton and Jan Ullrich. The former has indicated that he has already signed for a team, but there is not definitive indication that it is Tinkoff.
