World in shock as Messi set to be replaced on FIFA 17 cover

FIFA without Lionel Messi? Surely it’s impossible.

He may have only been on the cover for four years, but for dedicated fans it feels like a hundred.

But unfortunately all good things must come to an end and Messi’s contract with EA Sports is about to expire.

Worse still, Messi won’t be replaced by Neymar or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Barcelona have recently signed a deal with Pro Evolution Soccer which will mean that MSN will be unlikely to feature much on the new game, while James Rodriguez, Eden Hazard, Anthony Martial and Marco Reus will face a public vote to see who goes on the famous cover.
