Team Envy is looking to sign Finn “Karrigan” Andersen as a long term addition to their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, according to Dexerto.
Envy or any other organization will have to pay a buyout figure to FaZe Clan as well as come to an agreement with the player himself for his future contract. Multiple sources have confirmed with Dexerto that the buyout for Karrigan is at least $150,000 USD.
At the same time, Team Envy seems to be the front-runner to seal a deal with the decorated leader after he played with the North American squad at the recent IEM Katowice Americas Minor championship. Karrigan was with Envy for less than two months. Karrigan led Envy to a third-place finish at the Americas Minor and a last-place showing in the Third Place Play-In.
The $150,000 buyout, however, isn’t as pricy as other big names in the scene. Karrigan’s former teammate, Nikola “NiKo” Kovac, had a buyout from Mouz of about $500,000. French stars Nathan “NBK” Schmitt and Dan “apEX” Madesclaire apparently also each had buyouts of $800,000 from G2 Esports. So in comparison, karrigan’s contract seems reasonably priced.
