Paris - Vincenzo Nibali will compete in the Spanish Vuelta next month after failing to defend his Tour de France title.

Nibali, who announced on Friday that he will ride the third and final Grand Tour of the season alongside Astana team-mates Fabio Aru and Mikel Landa, finished fourth in the Tour.

The Italian rider, who won a Tour stage in the Alps after struggling during the first two weeks of the race, finished more than eight minutes behind race winner Chris Froome.

The British rider has yet to confirm whether he will ride in the Vuelta, with Tour runner-up Nairo Quintana also considering taking part.

Nibali won the Vuelta in 2010, and the Giro d'Italia in 2013.

The Vuelta starts on August 22.
