Colombian Carlos Betancur may spend the second half of the season at UAE Team Emirates rather than Movistar, according to media reports.

Italian sports paper La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the South American has a contract clause that would allow him to leave the Spanish formation on the 1st of August, and may be eyeing a move to UAE Team Emirates.

This would possibly allow him to ride the Vuelta a España, which starts on August 25, at a new team.

Betancur was considered a prodigy when he won Paris-Nice at the age of 24 in 2014, picking up two stage victories in the process. That same year he also won the Tour du Haut Var.

No victories were added to his palmares the next year, and the only win in the last three seasons was a stage victory at the Vuelta a Asturias in 2016.
