The Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi has moved from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain and will therefore play in the French league “Ligue 1” from now on. This should therefore also be used in FIFA 22 continue to gain in attractiveness.
Especially in the mode FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) you have to be prepared for changes. With Messi’s arrival, a lot more players are sure to consider building a Ligue 1 team this time around. The increased demand is likely to cause prices on the FUT transfer market to rise.
Buy Neymar, Mbappé and Messi
Anyone who plays with this consideration should be aware of the costs of the dream attack from Neymar, Mbappé and Messi. All of them are enormously expensive players, especially at the beginning of a FIFA season. The trio is getting really expensive in FIFA 22. If you don’t start with the premium currency FIFA Points, you shouldn’t have a chance of the miracle storm at first.
Completely new opportunities for hybrid teams will not necessarily arise from now on, after all, the Argentine Angel Di Maria is already playing for Paris, also on the right wing. EA could consider giving new positions, possibly “striker” for Messi, then both could even play at the same time. But that is rather unlikely in view of the positions that have been awarded in recent years.
LaLiga loses soccer heroes
Messi is undoubtedly a win for Ligue 1 and a loss for LaLiga in Europe. The Argentine has been an indispensable part of Barcelona and Europe over the years – and now he leaves a void in Barcelona that hardly anyone can fill.
Although there is an alternative on the right wing with the Argentine Angel Correa (Atlético Madrid), his player value should also be around ten points below Messi’s rating in FIFA 22.
