Rumors: Magisk, dupreeh and zonic to continue careers in Vitality

Vitality intend to sign the Danish trio from Astralis – Emil "Magisk" Reif, Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and Danny "zonic" Sørensen, whose contracts with the club expire in January 2022. This was reported by insider Guillaume "neL" Ratier.

The reason why Vitality decided to move to an international roster format remains unknown. At their last tournament, PGL Major Stockholm 2021, the French team lost to NAVI in the quarterfinals and took the 5-8th place.

dupreeh, Magisk and zonic left the starting five of Astralis following PGL Major Stockholm 2021, when the club announced the signing of Kristian "k0nfig" Wieneke, Benjamin "blameF" Bremer and Alexander "ave" Holdt.
