Italian transfer news

Italian website Tuttobiciweb has reported on some contract news, concerning mainly Italian riders. After Cristian Moreni's second placing in stage 18 of the Tour, he will likely renew his contract with Cofidis until the end of 2008. Filippo Pozzato (Quick.Step) is said to be in "advanced negotiations" with Liquigas, while Quick.Step is interested in Andrea Tonti (Acqua e Sapone). Another Acqua e Sapone rider, Rinaldo Nocentini, has had "concrete interest" from the French ProTour team AG2R.

Finally, Alexandre Vinokourov's new Astana team is on the lookout for riders, and has had contacts with German Matthias Kessler, who rode well in the last Tour.
