Player Review

He's not going to come cheap, but if you want a centralised Lionel Messi in your side, you might not get better.

Lionel Messi's 98-rated TOTY card is a RW, which means this 96-rated CF is the highest you can pick up to play at CAM, CF or ST on full chemistry.

You don't need to worry about investing and the card not being up to scratch, because it's incredible.

It's one for the richer FUT players, but he's an incredible card who won't let you down.
