NAVI to build new Junior roster without m0NESY
NAVI have announced that all the members of the current Junior roster, except Daniil "headtr1ck" Valitov, have been put on the transfer list. By the end of December, they will announce the new NAVI Junior lineup.
At the same time, the announcement says that the club is already negotiating the transfer of Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov. According to previously published rumors, G2 are close to acquiring the main star of NAVI Junior, while the transfer fee might add up to $600,000.
The lineup with the excluded Rodion "fear" Smyk, Eugene "Aunkere" Karyat and Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov was formed in March 2021. The team took part in both seasons of WePlay Academy League, where they finished 5th and 2nd, respectively.
NAVI will nonetheless retain their NAVI Youth roster, which consists of novice esports athletes, who temporarily cannot compete in official matches while being trained.
