Alonso: Important news coming soon

Alonso: Important news coming soon

Fernando Alonso has released a teaser on Twitter, telling his followers that he has "important news coming these days."

Although contracted to Ferrari for next season, the double World Champion has been linked to a move to Red Bull Racing in recent weeks.

Thought to be dissatisfied with Ferrari's progress, Alonso's manager Luis Garcia Abad met with Red Bull team boss Christian Horner in Budapest ahead of the summer break.

Neither party, though, could confirm what the talks were about although in later interviews Horner spoke of having more choices to replace Mark Webber than initially thought.

But whether or not Alonso's "important news" will relate to a move to Red Bull, or confirmation that he's remaining at Ferrari, remains to be seen.

The Tweet that is causing all the speculation: "I have important news coming these days ... Stay tuned here on Twitter and on the Web.. !!!"

There are reports claiming that the big news is that Alonso has bought Euskaltel-Euskadi's cycling WorldTour licence and is expected to create a team around Samuel Sanchez.
