Slovakian Peter Sagan (Cannondale) is only 24 years old and is already one of the greats of the sport. Twice he was able to secure the jersey of the rider with the best points at the Tour de France. There are also podium finishes at major classics such as Milan-San Remo or the Tour of Flanders, numerous stage victories in WorldTour tours and a victory in the Tour of Poland. There's no question: the cheeky Slovak's palmarès is long and will continue to grow. Its market value is correspondingly high.
According to a report by the Italian magazine Tuttobici, Sagan could start pedaling for Fernando Alonso's team for an annual salary of 3,3 million euros from the coming season. Supposedly there is already a provisional preliminary contract, since the rules of the World Cycling Union UCI do not allow official signing of contracts before August 1st of the year. the contract is also said to include a clause that leaves Sagan open to moving to another team should Alsonso's team fail.
Sagan, who has been driving for Team Cannondale and its predecessor Liquigas-Cannondale since 2010, and Alonso met in person ahead of the UCI World Championships in Tuscany.
