neL: ALEX is thinking of switching to VALORANT
French insider Guillaume "neL" Canelo refuted the information of DBLTAP portal that Alex "ALEX" McMikin is close to signing a contract with FunPlus Phoenix. According to Kanelo, the British player is dissatisfied with possible career options and considers VALORANT as an alternative.
At the moment, it's not close at all from a deal and nothing will happen for weeks, if something has to happen with FPX.— neL (@neLendirekt) August 19, 2020
As far as I know, the offers he got in CS (so far) are not what he wants. And he now thinks about going to VALORANT because of that. https://t.co/FtKrs9BRUt
Earlier it was reported that McMikin wants to return to the professional scene after a long pause caused by burnout. His contract belongs to Vitality, and the French organization is demanding $600,000 for a buyout. According to unconfirmed information, in addition to FunPlus Phoenix, Gen.G, c0ntact, Cloud9 and FaZe showed interest in the player.
