Fnatic Reportedly Demands $838,000 for Swedish CS:GO Star Brollan From NIP
A slight tussle over Brollan seems to be taking place between the two orgs!
Last week reports claiming that Swedish organization Ninjas in Pyjamas (NIP) had offered Fnatic around €600,000 ($679,425 USD) to sign their star rifler Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin had surfaced. There was no development regarding this for quite some time, but new reports alleging that Fnatic is currently holding back the offer from NIP have surfaced. According to a report from Jaxon, Fnatic is asking €750,000 ($838,000 USD) for Brollan's transfer.
While the community was wondering whether NIP would actually shell out more than half a million for the young entry fragger, the stakes have allegedly been raised further by Fnatic.
Report: Fnatic demand €750,000 from NIP for Brollan's transfer
There seems to be quite a tussle between the two organizations, Fnatic and NIP, for the young rifler who has been competing with the former for over three years now.
Brollan has grown significantly as a player during his time with Fnatic, winning multiple CS:GO tournaments like ESL Pro League Season 11 and DreamHack Masters Malmo 2019, while also securing the MVP (Most Valuable Player) award in the former.
NIP's CS:GO team is currently looking for some additional firepower, as their star AWPer Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz is still absent from the competitive circuit. It is still not decided who Brollan might be replacing on the Swedish roster, which is packed at the moment.
On the other hand, Fnatic is also in a bit of a pinch having just replaced their AWPer Owen "smooya" Butterfield with Iulian "regali" Harjău, and now being handed a tempting offer to part ways with their star rifler Brollan.
Fnatic did not play with Brollan during the PGL Major Antwerp 2022: European RMR - Open Qualifier #1. He was replaced by Peppe "Peppzor" Borak instead.
The current alleged offer for Brollan being requested by Fnatic is just a quarter of a million shy of what NIP had reportedly paid for dev1ce's transfer from Astralis. It remains to be seen if NIP is willing to match Brollan's asking price from Fnatic.
