Movistar boss Eusebio Unzué says Richard Carapaz and Nairo Quintana will leave the team at the end of the season, but is still unsure over the future of Mikel Landa.

Ecuadorian Carapaz, who won the 2019 Giro d'Italia in June, has reportedly signed a deal with Team Ineos from 2020, while Colombian Quintana, winner of the Giro, the Vuelta a España and a three-time Tour de France podium finisher, will likely join French team Arkéa-Samsic next year.
