FIFA 21: Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani handed Ultimate Team snub

3 min read

FIFA 21 was officially released on October 9 worldwide, but Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is still missing from the Ultimate Team game mode.

Summer signing Cavani wasn’t added to the virtual United squad on FIFA 21 until the day after the game was officially released, with the former Paris Saint-Germain forward joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad. This enabled FIFA fans to use him on modes such as Kick-Off, Career Mode and more.

However, despite EA SPORTS releasing five major Title Updates for FIFA 21 so far, there is still no sign of Cavani on the Ultimate Team game mode on FIFA 21, with FUT 21 players unable to add Cavani to their squads in the mode.

On FIFA 20 Ultimate Team last year, Cavani was given a FUT 20 card rated at 88 overall, ranking him amongst the best players in the world on the game. To put that into context, the highest-rated United player on FUT 20, without taking promo cards into account, was David De Gea (89), followed by Paul Pogba (88).

But, on FIFA 21 Kick-Off mode and Career Mode, Cavani has been given an overall rating of 84 out of 100. To put that into context, that ranks him at the same ability as Anthony Martial and above Donny van de Beek. But, it ranks him below Marcus Rashford (85), Paul Pogba (86), David De Gea (86) and Bruno Fernandes (87).

So, that would suggest that when, or if, Cavani is added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, he will be given a major downgrade from his rating in last year’s Ultimate Team, with the Uruguayan likely to be given an 84-rated FUT 21 card.

In real-life, Cavani featured for United at the weekend as they beat West Brom 1-0. But, it’s anyone’s guess as to when Cavani will finally be added to the FIFA 21 Ultimate Team mode.

MEN have contacted EA SPORTS for an update on when Cavani could be added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

FIFA 21 is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The next generation version of the game is set to be released on December 4, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
