The reported deal is for two-years, though the second year is tentative as an option for both sides.

The team would not comment or confirm the signing as it abides by the 1 August official transfer start date.

In addition to Contador, his Tinkoff teammate Jesus Hernandez is expected to move as well.

Other reports have linked John Degenkolb to the team as well. Degengolb announced earlier this week that he is leaving his current Giant-Alpecin team at the end of the season.
