So the transfer window is finally closed and the big story without a doubt, is the world record transfer of Gareth Bale from Tottenham to Real Madrid for 100 million Euros. Naturally, FIFA 14 fans are very eager to see if his stats will be upgraded from FIFA 13 and now we offer a possible prediction on what Gareth Bale’s Real Madrid stats for FIFA 14 could look like.
Everyone who regularly watches the Premiership will agree that Bale had an amazing season with Tottenham last season, arguably being solely responsible for Tottenham securing their place in the Europa League, narrowly missing out on Champions League qualification in the process.
Now though, it’s an entirely different future for Gareth Bale. He’ll now line up alongside maestros such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Xabi Alonso at Real Madrid and we already have a few heads-up teasers to share with you.
Above is a video, showing a prediction for his stats upgrade from FIFA 13 to FIFA 14. Some of you may remember the moment when Bale terrorized Maicon in a certain CL match where he scored a hatrick – resulting in a prediction of his Pace stat remaining very high with a score of 92.
Other stats are largely unchanged, but his overall rating has gone from an 85 to an 88 based on this prediction video. Do you think Bale deserves an 88 for FIFA 14, or should it actually be a higher number? Just for comparison purposes, Ronaldo is going to have a 92, while Messi is going to be the highest rating player in the entire game with a 94.
Last but certainly not least, EA definitely knows how to tease fans. The developer has released a very short clip, showing how Bale will look standing next to Ronaldo during a pre-match handshake. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we see some actual gameplay.
Now that Bale has made the switch to Madrid, let us know if you think 88 is an accurate score for him, or if you think it should be in the 90’s.
