FIFA 16 Players Rating Predicting - Man Utd

fifa16mall Date: Jul/09/15 17:00:49 Views: 45

Manchester United are expected to carry out some hefty transfer business this summer. There’s reportedly £200m in the bank, ready and waiting to be thrown at clubs across Europe to tempt them into selling their prized-asset-players. With FIFA 16 just a few months away from release, United’s players are set to be re-evaluated and judged on just how good they are at the present time – with FUT15’s card ratings and last season’s performances taken into consideration – in order to generate a new, accurate score per player for the new game.

With that in mind, it’s time to predict the ratings of each Manchester United player who will feature on FIFA 16. Bear in mind that this squad will look a LOT different come the opening day of the 2015/16 season, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.


Here they are then, in order from lowest to highest…



29. Reece James – 56

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 58

James was a fixture in United’s pre season of 2014, but he failed to make an impression on the first team through the season.

He played in the 4-0 drubbing by MK Dons and 90 minutes in the FA Cup, but he may not even be included on the new game.


28. Andy Kellett – 58

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 58

Signed to just play for the club’s Under-21 side in January, it’s something of a surprise that Kellett actually made it on to FIFA 15 in the first place.


27. Tyler Blackett – 68

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 65

Blackett should see his rating boosted for the new game after featuring in the first team regularly last season.

He doesn’t look to be a world-beater, but there were promising signs last term.


26. Jesse Lingard – 69

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 68

Lingard will likely end up loaned out again next season after spending the back end of 2014/15 playing in the Championship with Derby.

An injury stunted his progress for United last season, but he still may get a FUT boost.


25. Andreas Pereira – 70

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – N/A

Brazilian youngster Andreas Pereira could end up a bonafide first team squad member next season after his exploits for United’s youth teams.

He’s highly-rated at United, and could find himself bumped up significantly.


24. James Wilson – 71

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 63

There’s more high hopes at Old Trafford for James Wilson, and he’s set to be included in FUT for the first time next season.

Despite fluttering around the high-sixties other game modes last year, he could end up breaking the 70 barrier next time out – especially if he has a good pre-season.


23. Paddy McNair – 73

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 49

The Northern Irishman had an encouraging debut season in the United first team last year, and shone in matches against Everton and Chelsea.

He may hope for a similar involvement next year, though he’ll be hoping too that he gets a significant bump up to FUT silver card status.


22. Anders Lindegaard – 74

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 77

Who actually knows whether Anders Lindegaard will be at Old Trafford next season?

The smart money would be no, and even smarter money would be on a FUT rating drop.


21. Adnan Januzaj – 74

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 75

After a promising season under David Moyes in 2013/14, Adnan Januzaj couldn’t get going under Louis van Gaal.

There’s still promise in the Belgian, but he’ll likely start fulfilling it out on loan. And with a silver FUT card.


20. Rafael – 75

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 77

Rafael spent a large chunk of last season out injured.

But with Antonio Valencia covering his position and United looking to sign another right back, the Brazilian’s spell in the first team is all but over.


19. Luke Shaw – 77

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 75

Though somewhat criticised, Luke Shaw could find himself bumped up slightly for FIFA 16.

He showed some good form in performances towards the end of last season, and while his hefty price tag still weighs him down, he looks to be getting to grips with life at Old Trafford.


18. Jonny Evans – 77

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

Jonny Evans had a nightmare year last year. He’s always prone to a mistake, does not fill supporters with confidence and isn’t trusted by his manager either.

A downgrade should come his way, whether he’s at United next year or not.


17. Phil Jones – 79

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

Phil Jones isn’t the most conventional of defenders, but he’s effective enough.

He should stay around last year’s rating score given he neither excelled nor failed miserably last season.


16. Marcos Rojo – 79

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

Marcos Rojo’s steady first season in England should mean a steady FUT rating for next year too.

His status at 79 seemed accurate, and there’s no reason for that to go in either direction given his performances.


15. Antonio Valencia – 79

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 80

Antonio Valencia may get a positional change from RM to RB in the new game, given that’s where he spent most of his time playing for United last season.

A point or two may though get shaved off his rating to bring him into line with other players in the team.


14. Ashley Young – 80

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 78

Ashley Young’s resurgence of last season will almost certainly be reflected in his rating for FUT16. At just 78 last season, his score reflected a career on the wane, but he’ll be an integral part of United’s team again next season.

Young is a cheap and cheerful FUT player, offering excellent pace and shooting ability for the price he comes at.


13. Daley Blind – 80

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

Daley Blind proved an effective signing for Manchester United last season. While his best position is very much up for debate, the Dutchman is reliable and efficient.

A small increase in his rating next year wouldn’t come as a surprise.


12. Chris Smalling – 80

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 76

Perhaps Chris Smalling is entitled to one of the more drastic ratings increases ahead of next year’s FIFA. He was excellent for United in the second half of the season and has all but solidified himself as one of the first names on the team sheet.

Generally quick and strong, he could be a steal in a cheap PL team.


11.  Victor Valdes – 81

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – N/A

Having been injured and without a club at the time of FIFA 15’s release, Victor Valdes failed to feature on FUT last year.

However, he’s still an excellent goalkeeper, and should find himself amongst the low-eighties in terms of rating when he returns to the game.


10. Javier Hernandez – 81

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 81

Poor Chicharito. Neither Real Madrid or Manchester United want him – but he’s a proven goalscorer and he’ll undoubtedly bash them in for whichever club he plays for next.

At time of writing, he’s still a United player, but don’t expect much of a change in his rating given he’s still got the pace and finishing skills to threaten.


9. Michael Carrick – 81

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

Maybe the ageing Michael Carrick will get an increase in rating next year – especially considering how important he’s proven himself to be to Manchester United outside of the virtual world.

79 was always a little harsh anyway for a player Sir Alex Ferguson thinks is the “the best English player in the game” (not FIFA, the real game of football).


8. Marouane Fellaini – 81

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

Marouane Fellaini proved his doubters wrong and was incredibly effective for United’s attack in the second half of last season. He’s the definition of a pest; but one who’s really strong, fearless and scores important goals.

An increase of +2 could come his way ahead of the new release.


7. Ander Herrera – 82

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79

Ander Herrera was perhaps United’s best signing of last season, going on to prove that in some sense he’s United’s new Paul Scholes.

Of course, he’s nowhere near that level yet, but he can live with the Premier League and loves to get stuck in, can pick out a pass and can score goals from midfield. A big jump in rating could come his way.


6. Memphis Depay – 82

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 79 (Updated Card)

Speaking of signings, Manchester United have bought someone special in Memphis Depay. The Dutch Eredivisie’s top scorer from last season is going to be a popular player on the new Ultimate Team, especially given he’s due a big increase in rating.

Depay is lightning quick and deadly in front of goal. You might want to save up those fifa 16 coins


5. Robin van Persie – 83

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 88

From a big increase in rating, we move on to the biggest drop. Robin van Persie is well and truly past his best, and while his 88 rating from last year was generous enough, the Dutchman will endure an almighty fall from grace on the new game.

The 32-year-old still boasts a fierce shot, but expect FUT16 to bring him in to line.


4. Juan Mata – 85

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 85

Juan Mata found himself out of the Manchester United team at the start of last season, but he forced his way back in and got right back into form on the right wing.

With that in mind, Mata’s 85 rating likely won’t change too much. He still boasts great quality on the ball and an eye for goal.


3. Angel Di Maria – 85

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 86

Things did not go to plan for British football’s most expensive player in his debut season, but he’s ready to stay at Old Trafford and get back to his best next term.

Di Maria still boasts lightning pace, great ability on the ball and a knack for goals, so while a drop in rating could come his way, it’d be foolish to make it too drastic.


2. David de Gea – 86

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 85 (Updated Card)

The fact of the matter is, David de Gea will not be a Manchester United player next season.

He’ll sign for Real Madrid at some point (he may have already by the time you’re reading this) and he’ll play out the peak years of his career in his home town. Hurrah. Nevertheless, he’s still due another increase in rating.


1. Wayne Rooney – 87

FIFA 15 FUT Rating – 86

And finally, Manchester United’s best player on FIFA 16 Ultimate Team… Wayne Rooney.

Not all may agree, but given last year’s rating of 86 and his decent year all-round for United in 2014/15, he could get a slight increase to compensate for the horrendous drop in Robin van Persie’s form.

Rooney will likely go down as a central striker given that’s where Louis van Gaal sees him best, though he has the abilities to play in midfield too.
