According to a report on DBLTAP by CS:GO insider Jarek "DeKay" Lewis, famed Cloud9 player Tarik "tarik" Celik could be on his way out of the club, as he's reportedly in discussions with Immortals (the North American esports organisation that owns the MIBR brand) about joining the Brazilian majority lineup.

DeKay reports that, following MiBR's exit from ESL One Cologne 2018, sources claim the team is "in disarray", with tarik supposedly being considered as a potential replacement for Ricardo "boltz" Prass.

The acquisition of MiBR by Immortals was announced only towards the end of June, while the roster is one that had formerly plied their trade under SK Gaming. If tarik was to join, he would become the second American on the lineup, as former Cloud9 teammate Jake "Stewie2k" Yip moved to the side in what was touted as the biggest buyout in the history of CS:GO.

Also noted in the DBLTAP report is a Valve rule that states that at least three of the five players on a Major team's starting roster must remain from the previous Major. That rule would prevent both involved sides — Cloud9 and MiBR — from making any further roster moves until after the London Major later this year, should the tarik reports prove true.
