As fans patiently wait for the release of FIFA 18, they can now pass the time by arguing and debating over new players stats and ratings.
Leading the discussion is none other than former EA Sports FIFA community manager and current Twitch/YouTube rockstar Chu 'ChuBoi' Morah, who has been releasing weekly videos predicting the ratings of players from some of the world’s top clubs. In previous episodes Chu has offered his insight for Manchester United and Real Madrid with critical acclaim. This time, he tackles Barcelona FC.
After a shaky (for their unbelievably high standards) 2016/17 season, the Catalan side ended their season deep in the shadow of their rivals Real Madrid and without a coach. Compared to previous Barca sides, last season's squad was underwhelming and trophieless. Now that Barcelona are beginning a new era under manager Ernesto Valverde, perhaps the LaLiga team can return to their glory days. But how will they fare in FIFA 18?
Amongst ChuBoi's candidates for upgrades, Gerard Piqué, Samuel Umtiti and Gerard Deulofeu stand out. All three players had productive seasons but were they decent enough to earn a rating increase? Personally, I believe Chu's decision to increase Messi's rating is a touch unwarranted, but what do you think?
