With FIFA 18’s launch date drawing nearer and nearer, YouTuber and former EA Sports FIFA community manager Chu “ChuBoi” Morah has helped pass the time by releasing weekly player prediction videos. Each episode lasts around 10 minutes and offers viewers Chu’s opinions on how each team’s players will fare with ratings next season. In past episodes, Chu has predicted the player ratings for world renown teams such as Manchester United, Barcelona, and Real Madrid. This time he tackles Germany's "Record Champions", Bayern Munich.
The German club had a solid 2016/17 campaign under new manager Carlo Ancelotti, who was hired after the departure of now Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. Upon arrival, Ancelotti gave his input on a few signings to improve the squad. The German club's braintrust brought in Portuguese prodigy and FUT 17 favorite Renato Sanches along with pre-contract signing Mats Hummels. With these new additions, Bayern Munich was able to secure another Bundesliga title. However, the season felt a bit underwhelming after being knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals by Real Madrid. Sanches seldom featured too and could be on the move again now.
All in all, Bayern Munich had a superb season, but how will it affect their FUT 18 ratings? Chu's inclined to think that Hummels will get a boost while the oft injured last season Jerome Boateng will be downgraded. He also believes that Joshua Kimmich could get a big-time upgrade along with new signing Corentin Tolisso.
Worth noting: Chu issued this video before Bayern pulled off perhaps the coup of the summer, signing James Rodriguez on loan with an option to buy from Real Madrid.
So what do you think? Are Chu's Bayern Munich FIFA 18 rating forecasts in line with yours?
