Lionel Messi’s replacement Memphis Depay not in FIFA 22’s best XI LaLiga squad as Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez make the cut

As preparations gear up for FIFA 22, LaLiga’s top rated squad has been revealed in the post Lionel Messi era.

The Barcelona icon will not provide any chemistry links to non-Argentine LaLiga players on Ultimate Team as he had done in every year since he was in the game.

Messi was revealed as EA Sports FIFA’s top rated player and such is Barcelona’s current predicament, his replacement, Memphis Depay isn’t even in the list of the top eleven players.

Ever since Neymar’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, the list of high profile players leaving has grown exponentially which in turn has affected the league’s ratings of their players on FIFA.

Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus in 2018, as did Iniesta from Barca in the same year.

Bale, once one of the highest rated players on the game has become a fringe player at Real Madrid and his former team mate, Sergio Ramos departed for PSG this summer.

Whilst Ronaldo is still one of the most highest rated players on the game, his former team mate Bale isn’t even in the list of the top 24 players

With all those players departing for pastures new, there is only one player in the highest rated eleven on FIFA that is rated above 90 and that is Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

In total furthermore, only Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was given a 90+ rated card.
