Amad Diallo is yet to make his Manchester United debut after joining the club on January 7, but the youngster has already been given a big upgrade on FIFA 21 after being added to the squad.
FIFA 21 is kept up-to-date by regular player database updates that are also known as a server updates, with players being upgraded, downgraded, contracts changes, players added, players removed and much more, to make the game more realistic.
In the latest player database update on FIFA 21, United youngsters Hannibal Mejbri, Arnau Puigmal, Anthony Elanga, Reece Devine and D’Mani Bughail-Mellor have all been added to the Reds squad, with a number of first team players also getting upgrades.
Amad is one of the United players to be awarded a big upgrade as part of the latest update, despite not making a Premier League appearance for the club as of yet.
The Ivorian winger’s overall rating has increased from 64 to 66, with his agility (73-78) and balance (77-80) seeing big boosts too.
But, the most significant upgrade is his potential, which has been increased from 84 to 86, with the youngster’s position also changed from ST to RM.
This upgrade is significant because Amad can now reach the same overall rating as Paul Pogba and could become better than Marcus Rashford (85), Alex Telles (84), Edinson Cavani (84) and Anthony Martial (83).
In fact, Amad could become the second-best United player on FIFA 21 if he reaches his potential, with only Bruno Fernandes (88) rated higher.
