The General Manager of Trek-Segrado entrusted Vincenzo Nibali with great opportunities to return home to his old team, Astana, next season .

As he celebrates his 37 years in November, Vincenzo Nibali does not intend to store his bike and intends to afford a last good deal. Its lease at Trek-Segafredo, which he joined the beginning 2020, expires at the end of the year, and the negotiations for a possible extension have failed. Messina's shark should return to the team of which he has brought the colors from 2013 to 2016, Astana Premier Tech. It is the General Manager of Trek-Segafredo, Luca Guercilena, who told him to CyclingNews. "From what I know, he did not decide what he wants to do next. He did not communicate what he wants as far as he wants to participate in the Olympics. It has been very often linked to Astana, so I think it will sign there. At this point, we did not offer him a contract. We discussed with his agent during the spring, but we never found agreeing. He wanted a one-year contract.

Nothing official before August 1st To date, Vincenzo Nibali has not won the slightest race under the Trek-Segafredo jersey, his last success dating back to the 20th stage of the Tour de France 2019 in Val Thorens , with Bahrain-Merida. At Astana, Nibali would find the sports director who gave him two Giro (2013 and 2016) and a Tour de France (2014), Giuseppe Martinelli. But nothing will be official before August 1st, the date of the opening of the cycling transfers market. On the Trek-Segafredo side, we will not necessarily look to replace Nibali by a runner that can win a big turn. "We have invested on young runners and we want to continue supporting our runners like Giulio Ciccone, Bauke Mollema, Jasper Sturyven and Mads Pedersen. Kenny Elissonde will also remain, "continues Guercilena, who said he was not in contact with Geraint Thomas, who will be at the end of the contract with INEOS Grenadiers in December.
