The Polish Counter Strike Team Virtus.Pro could replace one of their legendary players Wiktor “TaZ” Wojitas from their active lineup after a crushing 0-3 elimination at Eleague Major 2018. A lineup change for the long lasting CS:GO roster could finally happen.
According to a report by esports journalist Jarek “DeKay” Lewis, Virtus.pro has informed Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas that he will be replaced with Team Kinguin’s Michal “MICHU” Müller. The only problem could be the transfer fee which reportedly is around $310,000.
Furthermore, Virtus.Pro warned Filip “NEO” Kubski of their underperformance. The management urged that Neo will have to follow his way out of the team along with TaZ if the performance doesn’t improve. This means that, the trio of Jaroslaw “pashaBiceps” Jarzabkowski, Janusz “Snax” Pogorzelski, and Pawel “byali” Bielinski will remain as the longest-standing lineup in CS:GO history.
However, in an interview with HLTV, Kinguin’s Giovanni Varriale stressed that the organisation is not looking to sell MICHU at this time.
“It is hard to comment on something we know from ‘internet rumours,” the Kinguin chief told HLTV.org.
“All we can say right now is that we are happy with the current team setup and we have no intention to sell any of our players.”
This could mean that Virtus.pro will have to meet the player’s valuation, reported to be in the region of $300,000, for a deal to come through.
