Why Are Dani Alves, André Onana, Franck Ribery Not In FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?

If a player doesn't get an Ultimate Team card, then the player didn't have a valid contract with a club or with EA Sports until a certain date before the FIFA release. EA needs the licenses to be allowed to use player and club names.

Dani Alves returned to FC Barcelona after the FIFA release. André Onana was suspended due to a doping scandal. Illegal substances were found in his sample at that time, so he was banned and therefore not eligible to play in FIFA 22.
