Checa to make MotoGP comeback?

Speedy Spaniard linked to satellite Ducati ride for 2010

THE rumour-mill has gone into overdrive this morning with the news that Carlos Checa is in serious talks with Ducati about a return to the MotoGP world.

Currently with the Ten Kate Honda team, Checa has been left somewhat out in the cold after the news that the two-man Honda line up in WSB 2010 would consist of Jonathan Rea and Max Neukirchner.

According to Spanish sources, Checa has held extensive talks with Ducati already and a deal is virtually signed off and completed.

Will he be a title contender? No, of course he won't. So we're wondering why Toseland didn't get the ride...
