Lionel Messi left Barcelona in a shock move to Paris Saint-Germain and joins Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid for a return to Manchester United this summer.
When is it published?
FIFA 22 will be released on Friday, October 1.

Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe among top FIFA 22 players top rated players revealed
Player ratings and card information are usually released before the release date, about two weeks before.
But the 22 best FIFA 22 players have been revealed and there are some shocks.
In FUT 21, Messi has just surpassed Ronaldo to take first place as the highest rated player on the game mode with a rating of 93.
Kevin De Bruyne is in the top 22 but Jack Grealish will surely see a higher rating this FIFA
Ronaldo was right behind him at 92 while the Premier League’s best card came from Kevin De Bruyne at 91.
Now, however, Ronaldo has been overtaken by Robert Lewandowski. It’s the first time he’s not been in the top two since FIFA 10.

EA Sports FIFA has released the ratings of the 22 best players
Notes include many Premier League stars, but there will be some debate
Ronaldo’s card this year however, knocks him off the top two cards for the first time since FIFA 10 despite his continuing record high.
Best potential Premier League XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Varane, Robertson, De Bruyne, Kante, Son, Ronaldo, Kane, Salah.
Predictions for the remaining players
There will be plenty of forwards to choose from this season, especially in the Premier League, with the addition of Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea providing an ideal target man as his card is expected to drop from 85.
Jack Grealish is another player who received a considerably low rating for his first gold card.
His move to Manchester City and his precious playing time for the Champions as well as his efforts for EURO 2020 will potentially increase his card from 80 to over 84.
Hundreds of millions of people buy the new FIFA every year, FIFA 21 has sold over 325 million copies
FIFA doesn’t often give huge increases to player ratings, but during the season they will be releasing various Team of the Year, Month and Week cards to fully replicate current performance.
