Top 5 Manchester United Players In FIFA 17 (Ratings Included)
The release of FIFA 17 is not far away anymore and Manchester United fans are exceptionally excited to see their players’ new ratings.
Before the launch, there has been the inevitable set of pictures leaked from the game’s beta version, which claims to show just how good each squad really is.
The much-awaited game for football fans around the world will hit the shelves towards the end of September and for months fans have been teased by the trailers and new features without being told how each player’s ratings and abilities will change in the new version of the franchise.
Manchester United signed a new three-year partnership deal with EA Sports last week, which might be the result of certain upgrades in the players’ stats and better character modelling.
Me and other United supporters who are avid FIFA players can hardly wait for next month to see the likes of Ibra, Pogba, and Mkhitaryan playing for Manchester United in the new game.
David De Gea: 91
Zlatan Ibrahimovic: 90
34 years old and still one of the highest rated players in the game, Zlatan’s rating and stats will be more than enough for United fans to finally calm down and score some wonderful finishes in the game from literally anywhere!
Paul Pogba: 87
Henrikh Mkhitaryan: 87
The former Borussia Dortmund player has managed to keep his form going up every year in the EA Sports’ franchise. 87 rating is perfect for a player of his talent. Placing him at the wing, offering crosses and chances to the 90 rated Ibra will be a sheer delight.
Wayne Rooney: 86
The skipper got the same rating as last year’s. His stats have not been that great since he got off the cover for FIFA games with Lionel Messi replacing him. Despite that, 86 rating is going well for him with stats reflecting him being decent in every aspect of the game.
Jesse Lingard higher than Marcus Rashford as Manchester United ratings are revealed on FIFA 17
The full list of Manchester United’s player ratings on FIFA 17 has been revealed, and there are some surprise scores on offer.
While FIFA fans were already aware of highly-rated stars David De Gea, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba’s ratings, there was plenty of mystery surrounding the rest of the squad.

But not anymore…
EA Sports has released the rankings of the squad members and there are certainly some contentious ratings.
Below are the major talking points:
Jesse Lingard rated higher than Marcus Rashford
Yes, it’s somehow true.
Despite the emergence of 18-year-old Rashford, his 23-year-old compatriot is somehow still rated higher than he is.
Wayne Rooney better than Anthony Martial
While the Frenchman was United’s best player last season, Rooney drew plenty of criticism for his performances.
But FIFA have not seen it that way and have given the England captain a rating of 84 to Martial’s 82.
Bastian Schweinsteiger United’s second-best central midfielder
Despite being exiled by Jose Mourinho, FIFA rate the German ace as United’s best central midfielder behind Paul Pogba.
A rating of 83 is better than Morgan Schneiderlin (82), Ander Herrera (82), Michael Carrick (81) and Marouane Fellaini (78).
Should Mourinho start using him more?
