Since this is also a "rumors" thread, can we try to get ahead of the Carapaz-to-Ineos rumblings that have been going on?

From the outside it seems like really bad contract management by Movistar.

The current wage according to recent reports (no doubt his agent has been bandying this about) is 150k a year. Peanuts. Now logic would suggest to me that post his performance at the 2018 Giro someone at Movistar should have thought "Hey this guy is seriously underpaid for the talent he has. Maybe we should sit down with his agent and sort something out now in advance of his contract year". This is what happens in some other sports. Breakthrough performance by a youngster and it earns them a better and longer contract.

It might not even have to have been a massive increase. Pulling figures out of thin air, but basic wage of 400-500k, some performance related bonuses and extra year or two on the length. Now with the Giro victory, the cost just got much higher for them and he's obviously on the radar of everyone with some cash.
