Two Manchester United players feature in FIFA 17’s 10 best players

Luis Suarez isn't in the top three.

We’re finally in September, which means FIFA 17 is out this month.

There’s not long left until we can get our hands on the new game for keeps this time, and based on our sneak peak of it during the summer, it’s going to be a good one.

As the anticipation of the new release builds, there have been slow drip-feedings of details about the game.

There have been some from official channels like the announcement of the game’s new story mode ‘The Journey’ (which we reviewed for you here) and there have been some less than official leaked player ratings for teams like Manchester United, Arsenal and Bayern Munich.

And it seems that the so-called leaked ratings were onto something, as the somewhat generous ratings for some Man United and Bayern players has been confirmed with the release of the ratings of the best 4 to ten players in the game.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David de Gea both claim a rating of 90, while Robert Lewankdowski (90), Jerome Boateng (also 90) and Manuel Neuer (92) take pride of place for the German side.

Barring a sharp increase in the rating of Phil Jones, Gareth Bale looks set to be the highest-rated Brit in the game – as he also scores a 90 – while Luis Suarez’s 59-goal season still doesn’t earn him a spot in the top three although his 92 rating means he will still be very dangerous.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that will likely be populated by Suarez’s team-mates Lionel Messi and Neymar alongside their Ballon d’Or rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

The latest ratings are:

10. David De Gea – Manchester United – 90


9. Robert Lewandowski – Bayern Munich – 90


8. Jerome Boateng – Bayern Munich – 90


7. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Manchester United – 90


6. Gareth Bale – Real Madrid – 90


5. Manuel Neuer – Bayern München – 92


4. Luis Suarez – FC Barcelona – 92
