This has to be one of the most exciting weeks that we have seen in terms of transfer window deadlines. First we had Balotelli to Liverpool, then it was Di Maria to Man Utd and now FIFA fans can look forward to the prospect of seeing a Xabi Alonso Bayern Munich transfer.
As far as we’re aware, a ‘deal in principle’ has been agreed between Real Madrid FC and Bayern Munich. The deal has not been completed yet, but we have seen from heavy speculation that a medical is planned for Thursday ahead of a £8m transfer.
Back in the world of FIFA though, Xabi Alonso may actually be getting the downgrade treatment from EA. Those of you who play FIFA know that YouTube is littered with ratings predictions as the community seemingly do just as good a job as EA in promoting the game behind the scenes.
However very video that we have seen suggests that Xabi Alonso is going to get the downgrade treatment from an 85 to 84. We have already seen EA downgrade some players for FIFA 15 from FIFA 14 and Xabi Alonso could be the next player in line after having an average season for Real Madrid.
It would be controversial though, then again EA may also be basing any potential downgrade on the fact that Xabi Alonso is pretty old at almost 33 years of age.
What would you say if Xabi Alonso moves to Bayern Munich on FIFA 14 Ultimate Team, but then gets a downgrade from EA to an 84 on FIFA 15? Give us your reaction to the transfer and what you think should be his rating below.
