Prosecutors said to offer Ullrich million-euro deal

Public prosecutors have allegedly offered Jan Ullrich a deal in their investigation that he cheated his former employer, Deutsche Telekom. They will drop the charges and close the case if he admits to having been a client of Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes and pays a fine of one million euro, according to the German news magazine Focus.

Ullrich was suspended by T-Mobile Team on the day before the Tour de France started in 2006 because of his involvement in Operación Puerto. He announced his retirement from cycling in February 2007. A few weeks later it was announced that blood bags take in Operación Puerto had been confirmed as his blood. Ullrich has consistently denied all charges.
