neL: Vitality intends to sell ALEX for record CS:GO $600,000
North American organization FaZe is considering signing Alex "ALEX" McMikin, according to insider Guillaume "neL" Canelo. The player is interested in several other teams, and Vitality, who own the rights for the Brit, plans to generate revenue from the sale of at least $600,000.
In March this year McMikin suspended his career because of the emotional burnout due to the large number of flights. He is now ready to return to the professional stage, which has attracted interest from teams such as FunPlus Phoenix, Gen.G, c0ntact, Cloud9 and FaZe. The latter are most interested in the player.
Vitality confirmed the negotiations on ALEX and expressed hope for a speedy conclusion of the deal. Rumor has it that signing a contract with a 24-year-old shooter may cost his new team $600,000. If successful, this transfer will be the largest in CS:GO history.
"We fully support ALEX in his desire to change the team. As usual, these things take time, but we negotiate with several organizations. Things are going pretty well. We hope to be able to complete everything in the coming weeks," says Vitality.
Sources argue that ALEX is carefully considering each proposal. Its goal is to continue a career outside of France.
