Spanish journalist Javier Ares of radio broadcaster Onca Cero says that the move of Mikel Landa to Movistar Team is practically a done deal.

There has been plenty of speculation about Landa's future after the Spaniard's convincing performances at the current Tour de France and the recent Giro d'Italia.

Landa himself had already indicated that whatever happens, he will want to be a team leader. This makes a contract extension at Team Sky look very unlikely as everything points at Chris Froome continuing as team leader for the Tour de France.

"The negotiations between Movistar and Mikel Landa are very advanced," Ares said.

"Landa will ride for Movistar in the next seasons. This is practically a closed deal and may be announced to the public once the last details have been sorted," he added.

Ares is one of the most experienced cycling journalists in Spain, having provided radio commentary for more than 20 editions of the Tour de France.
