Contrary to current reports, which have linked Francisco Mancebo to Spanish outfit Relax-Gam, the Spaniard has not yet signed with a new team for 2007. According to his manager David Plaza, Mancebo and his team AG2R are about to reach a settlement regarding the termination of his existing contract with the French team, and negotiating with various squads for the coming season. However, Plaza rectified that no negotiations had taken place with the new Pro Continental formation Tinkoff as reported by L'Equipe on November 18, and later denied by Tinkoff.

Grand Tour specialist Mancebo had been implicated in the Operación Puerto scandal and suspended by his team since late June this summer.
