Maximilian Schachmann has confirmed he is in talks with multiple teams over a possible transfer for 2021 but is keen to resume racing before he makes a decision, with the Tour de France and the Classics forming the basis of his season.

Schachmann is one of the top riders out of contract at the end of 2020. After spending his first two years as a pro with Deceuninck-QuickStep, the German has shone in the colours of German team Bora-Hansgrohe, winning three stages of the Basque Country and the German road race title in 2019, as well as placing top-five in Amstel Gold Race, Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
