It's interesting to read Jaksche's suggestion that Fuentes was in Germany for the 2006 World Cup.

The German authorities conducted a raid in Goettingen less than a month after the World Cup had ended and the press view at the time was that the target of the raid was supplying drugs to Fuentes via Labarta acting as middleman, who had been arrested in May that year along with four others including Fuentes himself.

The heat was on Fuentes by July, when the World Cup was hosted, and it seems extraordinary that he may have, despite being under investigation, travelled to Germany anyway.

Finally, as far as I am aware, this simple fact is a new development:

Reports in Spain have said that Fuentes is not denying that the transfusions took place, but his defence will state they were done with top-of-the-range equipment.

which makes sense as it is a health issue not doping
