TASR newswire quoted his current team owner Oleg Tinkov.

“Peter Sagan has already signed with Bora, it’s a done deal. Give him much more as I gave him me. With me it was 4.5 million euros a year, they offered him six. And after that I overpay riders,” said Tinkov, who has said he is closing his team at the end of the season.

The team will be known as Bora-hansgrohe in 2017 as a new co-title sponsor comes on board.

Sagan was rumored to be talking with Astana, Trek and Etixx-QuickStep.
