Despite showing interest in signing Peter Sagan for 2022, Deceuninck-QuickStep manager Patrick Lefevere has now ruled out the possibility of signing the three-time world champion. 

Sagan is out of contract at Bora-Hansgrohe at the end of 2021 and speculation over his future has grown since the German team's manager Ralph Denk suggested they no longer needed the services of the rider who effectively propelled them to the WorldTour when he arrived in 2017.
