But how would they do?

YouTuber BMOnus decided to find out using FIFA 17’s Career Mode.

Let’s see how they got on.

Sadly, by June 2018, neither player could help United get to the Champions League final – with the Red Devils crashing out against Bayern Munich in the semis.

Surely they fared better in the league, right?

Manchester United come top of the table – beating Spurs by some margin

They sure did.

United finished top of the table – some nine points ahead of Spurs.

Everton played a blinder to finish third, while Arsenal – surprise, surprise, came fourth.

Worryingly, neither Bale or Griezmann were anywhere near the league’s top scorers.

Griezmann and Bale are nowhere to be seen amongst the top scorers

In fact, it was Paul Pogba who came top of the list – with 21 league goals.

Griezmann managed to score eight goals in 26 league games, while Bale managed just one goal in 19 appearances.

So, if Jose Mourinho had to pick between the pair, there’s a clear winner – despite the fact that neither really set the league alight.

Better still, play Pogba up front.
