Nibali close to signing for Astana

The sports director of Astana, Aleksandr Vinokúrov, has assured that they are "close to an agreement" to take over the services of Vincenzo Nibali.

The Italian Vincenzo Nibali (Trek Segafredo), one of the seven riders in history who have won Tour, Giro and Vuelta, is close to signing for Astana, according to Alexander Vinokurov, director of the new project of the Kazakh team.

In two years on the Trek, 37-year-old Vincenzo Nibali has not achieved any success, but Vinokurov has the "Shark of Messina" for the 2022 season.

After being removed from his post as sports director, Vinokurov has returned to Astana with a new position that enables him to direct transfer policy.

When Aleksandr was asked about Nibali he said that they are "close to an agreement", and that they were sure they will get together, as they think "of a good team in a new and calm environment" .
