NAVI and G2 have reached an agreement on the transfer of the AWPer of NAVI Junior Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov, insider Guillaume "neL" Ratier reports.
According to the information published, the transfer fee for the 16-year-old Russian, which satisfied both parties after several weeks of negotiations, amounted to $600,000. The agreement also includes unnamed options and various bonuses.
It is still unknown who will m0NESY replace in G2. According to the insider, the newcomer will replace Audric "JaCkz" Jug or François "AmaNEk" Delaunay, with the latter being the preferred option. The situation around Nemanja "nexa" Isaković, who is experiencing difficulties with travelling across the European Union, also remains uncertain.
Osipov is expected to debut in G2 next year. The last big event of the year, BLAST Premier World Final 2021, which will be held in mid-December, will be played with the unchanged lineup.
