The release of the EA Sports’ FIFA ratings are usually a big deal in the world of both video games and world football. Many fans, and even players, eagerly anticipate the release of the ratings, to see how their favorite teams stack up against the competition, and endless debates will be had as to if FIFA got it right, or if they over-rated, or under-rated, certain players, leagues, and teams.
No surprise as Gonzalo Higuain is the highest rated player for Milan, with an overall 88. The veteran Argentina international was the highest profile acquisition for Milan, as they traded former captain Leonardo Bonucci to Juventus for Mattia Caldara & made a loan deal for Higuain that will be made permanent next summer.
At 83 overall, and second highest rated at the club, Samu Castillejo is a surprise, as is Pepe Reina following him with the same rating. Both of them also came to the club during the summer, but neither have started for Milan, and don’t seem to be in the plans to be in the starting eleven anytime soon. Suso, Alessio Romagnoli, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Giacomo Bonaventura, and Lucas Biglia are all rated as 82 overall.
Following them, Hakan Calhanoglu, Mateo Musacchio, Tiémoué Bakayoko, Ricardo Rodriguez, and Mattia Caldara are all rated overall 80. Cristian Zapata, Franck Kessie, Riccardo Montolivo, Ignazio Abate, and Diego Laxalt were all rated 78 overall.
Davide Calabria, Andrea Bertolacci, and Patrick Cutrone were all rated as 77 overall, with Fabio Borini and Alen Halilovic rated as 76 overall.
Andrea Conti is the last of the “gold” players, with a overall 75. Ivan Strinic, who is currently out with medical issues is ranked as 74 overall. Stefan Simic, Jose Mauri, along with goal keepers Alessandro Plizzari and Antonio Donnarumma are the lowest rated players at the club, with the two keepers both at 66 overall, and Simic with a 73 and Mauri with a 72.
