A lot has happened in world football in the 2021/22 season. While some teams were able to build on their performances from previous years, other teams failed miserably to meet their own expectations.

This was not only reflected by the number of special cards in FIFA 22, but also affects the ratings of the individual clubs in FIFA 23. Who will be the best team in the world in the new FIFA? Who has the strongest midfield? We at EarlyGame give our predictions for the ratings in the upcoming FIFA. Apart from the top 100 players, this also includes the individual clubs.

Today we will predict the Manchester United FIFA 23 player ratings!

Manchester United In FIFA 23

Sir Alex Ferguson... That's the name! After his career as coach of Manchester United ended, the club didn't get anything done. Yes, José "The Special One" Mourinho won the Europa League once, congratulations! Can new coach Erik ten Haag bring the Red Devils back to their former glory?

The coaches were not usually the problem. It's the club's management and transfer policy that has set the club back for years. Let's take the example of Paul Pogba... He's let go to Juventus Turin on a free transfer, only to be bought again a few years later for 105 million euros... Only to lose him again for free to Juve in this transfer phase?! I am under the water, please help me.


Manchester United Transfers – OTW's

While all the other Premier League teams have been shopping around, United are taking it easy so far this transfer window. Tyrell Malacia arrives from Rotterdam for 15 million euros, he is supposed to compete with Shaw and Telles as a LB. That's it with the additions - until now. Malacia will then be available as OTW.

The list of departures is crazy: Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic (AS Roma) and Dean Henderson (Nottingham). Whew. And Cristiano Ronaldo still wants to leave because he wants to play Champions League.... Bad times.

  • Tyrell Malacia (LB) | FIFA 23 Rating: 79 OVR

Oh my god... Seeing these ratings and downgrades just hurts, but unfortunately, it has to be. Manchester United's season was just crap, even Ralf Rangnick couldn't save anything. CR7 and De Gea carried this team on their shoulders, Maguire in particular was in the backpack. When Ronaldo didn't score, and the good man is approaching his 40s, there was NOTHING going on. The talent is definitely there, and we are also of the opinion that Erik ten Haag can now finally tease it out of the players.

Cristiano Ronaldo Gets A Rating Downgrade In FIFA 23

Crisch, CR7, Siuuu, GOAT, or whatever you want to call him, will unfortunately get -1 OVR for FIFA 23. So, his rating goes from a 91 to a 90 OVR. We think that's pretty fair, his season was good, but at EA age, always plays a big role in the rating. The Portuguese will still be one of the best meta players in FIFA 23.

David De Gea In FIFA 23

The keeper was one of the few bright spots last season. De Gea made awesome saves and was also completely deservedly rewarded with a TOTS. According to our prediction, De Gea would be a walkout in FIFA 23.

Jadon Sancho In FIFA 23

After his transfer from BVB to United, Sancho didn't get on track at all. Only towards the end of the season, he showed his skills here and there. We downgrade Sancho -2 to 85 OVR. The same downgrade goes to Marcus Rashford, who has gone from bad form to bad form. But don't worry guys, the rating can be quickly corrected upwards with a good season.

Harry Maguire In FIFA 23

Harry Maguire has become a meme. Of course, it's funny and justified, but the man doesn't really deserve it. Due to his physique, he already looks very clumsy and immobile in some situations. And the 80 million euro transfer fee contributes the rest... His sometimes hair-raising mistakes cause us to downgrade him from an 84 OVR to an 82 OVR.

This Is How Manchester United Could Look Like In FIFA 23

There's surely to be plenty happening in the transfer market as Erik ten Haag will be calling for new arrivals. Is Dybala coming? Is Lewandowski coming? Is Tielemans coming? Is Akanji coming? The next few weeks will be interesting. This is how United would currently line up in FIFA 23:
