Moto2 title leader Scott Redding already has 'one firm offer' to step up to MotoGP next season - with a second expected 'later this week'.

Those were the words of Redding's Marc VDS team boss Michael Bartholemy, also Redding's personal manager, when speaking to the official MotoGP website.

Whilst not revealing who is behind the offers, Bartholemy confirmed that Ducati management, "have a big eye on Scott, but I haven't spoken with Livio [Suppo, Honda] recently."

The Marc VDS team is also known to be considering a step up to MotoGP next year. Former factory Kawasaki boss Bartholemy stated "it would be down to both Redding and team owner Marc van der Straten to make that choice".

Redding's Moto2 title rival Pol Espargaro has long been linked with a Yamaha MotoGP ride for 2014. And like Marc VDS, Espargaro's Pons squad is also thought to be considering MotoGP. Team owner Sito Pons previously ran a multi-race winning satelitte Honda team.

Dorna boss Carmelo Ezpeleta recently announced that the MotoGP grid could rise by four places next season. However two of those places were predicted to go to Suzuki, which has delayed its return until 2015.
