Lionel Messi will once again be the highest-rated player on FIFA with the Barcelona and Argentina star just ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in the upcoming video game.

Messi, who was linked with a move to Manchester City in recent weeks before deciding to stay with Barcelona, is given a rating of 93 by EA Sports for the latest instalment of their massively-popular series.

That puts him just ahead of Juventus and Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo on 92 though his club appears as Piemonte Calcio in the game for licensing reasons.
