The oldest of the Izagirres admits it's highly unlikely the brothers will team up at Movistar in 2014.
Gorka finally sealed his long-awaited move to Movistar earlier this week, bringing to an end a four-year spell in the orange jersey. Ion has, like most Euskaltel stars, been linked with numerous teams the last few months, but it appears likelier by the day that he'll stay put and form a key part of Fernando Alonso's new team.
Speaking to ETB, Gorka says he has "difficulty" seeing Ion making the move to Movistar as well.
"It's the truth - it looks difficult", he said. "Both parties would have to come to an agreement. Time will tell, but there's no rush".
He further reveals he was offered the chance to be a part of Alonso's squad next year, but says that he'd by then already made up his mind.
"I had the chance to stay on, but I had already made my decision. The negotiations with Movistar were already at an advanced stage. I finished what I started and signed for two years".
