Here’s an update: It has been confirmed that they got their man. It also sounds like McLaren F1 is committed to the project too. Reports are floating around that they will replace Nibali with Landa, but my guess is the entire roster is about to go through a major shake up if they don’t produce a lot more than they have thus far.

Nibali is going to Trek right?
Yep, that’s already been confirmed as well. Why Trek continues to sign riders whose best days may be behind them escapes me, but I guess Nibali did look good at the Giro this year. Not as dominant as he once was, but good still. If they are smart, it’s time to let the likes of Degenkolb and Porte move on and to build around Ciccone and Nibali.

Not confirmed but likely Landa to Bahrain. The part that has been confirmed is that he won't be back at Movistar. Also from a comment that Unzue made it sounds like they also don't plan on keeping Quintana.
