Rumours from Italy suggest that Ducati are eager to get their teeth into Jorge Lorenzo
RUMOURS, and we stress they are rumours, from Italy are suggesting that Ducati are hot on the trail to bag Lorenzo for 2010.
Lorenzo, who was linked with a £4m contract with Honda earlier in the month, is allegedly deep into talks with Ducati and their sponsor Marlboro for the 2010 season.
Allegedly Phillip Morris, owners of Marlboro have offered Lorenzo a seven-million euro a year contract to ride the Desmosedici in 2010 with all likelihood that he would pair up with Stoner.
Ducati, who have seen their number-one rider Casey Stoner blighted by illness and Hayden under-performing all season, are desperate to find a combination to beat Rossi and Yamaha.
More soon as we find it.

depends on money motivation.although he is not a footballer is he.does he take 6 million over being the man that finally beat vale on the same machinary i think not.he would be mad to leave yamaha at the moment he is all but his crashes giving vale hell.without the crashes he is capable of winning the world championship next year on a yamaha,this year has gone.on a duke could be a few years before he is in the position he finds himself in now.best team best bike,best development rider rossi as a team mate its not all bad.and the mad as feck simonchelli coming up into the class who after is first year will be a force.so lorenzo need to make hay while the sun shines as marco could be the real deal in moto gp.by the way we are blessed at the moment i believe we are seeing some of the great riders ever but vale is alltime god.what can the rest do?
statment from burgess on rossi ,i can tell what lap he is on by his position on the bike,how immense is that,shit going out to try and get my knee down.
