Latest - Nicolo Fagioli removed from FC 24

Amidst the controversy surrounding the Italian players in the betting scandal recently, Nicolo Fagioli was given a seven-month ban from football.

This has prompted EA to remove the Italian player from FC 24, and it is expected that we won't see a return from the Juventus central midfielder until May 2024, at the very least.

Fagioli was a great addition to Career Mode, and one of the best wonderkids in the CM position, which is a huge loss to FC 24 players.

Fagioli has become the second Juventus midfielder to be removed from FC 24 following Paul Pogba who was provisionally suspended in September for failing a drugs test after his initial sample showed elevated levels of testosterone in his system.

Italian stars face removal from FC 24

Sandro Tonali signed for Newcastle United for 64 million Euros in the summer, making him the second-highest transfer in the club's history, and has settled to life in the North-East of England brilliantly so far.

However, Tonali is amongst several Italian players in the headlines at the moment, for breaching betting rules, with guilty parties being given three-year bans.

Although the midfielder has not received any type of punishment, he, along with Nicolo Zaniolo, and Nicolo Fagioli have also been under scrutiny, which may mean they receive bans from football for some time!

If the players are given lengthy suspensions, EA will likely remove them from FC 24, as they did with Ivan Toney in FIFA 23.

EA usually acts swiftly when it comes to these situations, so be sure to make your decisions before it's too late. If you have Tonali, or Zaniolo in your Ultimate Team squad, now may be the best time to sell, before they are removed from the game.
