FIFA 23 Kylian Mbappe: Rumoured cover star set to top the ratings list

FIFA 23 is just around the corner, with the buzz of rating season soon to overcome the FIFA community.

With that in mind, we want to take a look at Kylian Mbappe, and assess where the king of France could end up in the FIFA 23 rankings.

Kylian Mbappe FIFA 23 Prediction

Kylian Mbappe looks set to be revealed as the FIFA 23 cover star, and this time we think that accolade may arrive with a further caveat.

A sensational player with the world at his feet, we think FIFA 23 may mark the year when Messi and Ronaldo are knocked off the top of the rating perch.

The two GOATs have traded blows for years, but now it looks like Mbappe could be the man to take control.

King of France - Mbappe has decided to stay at PSG

We've predicted a +2 boost for Mbappe, which may seem like a lot, but would reflect his standing in the game.

With a bumper contract signed at PSG, there's no doubt Mbappe is due an upgrade, but could we be about to see the Frenchman explode into FIFA stardom? We think so.

Mbappe's FIFA 22 Cards

Kylian Mbappe continued his fine form and had another stellar season for PSG, lifting the Ligue 1 title with the French side.

His performances for PSG earned him a number of top cards in FIFA 22, which could give us an indication as to where Mbappe will finish in the ratings pile when FIFA 23 rolls around.

Base Card

Despite being the FIFA 22 cover star, Kylian Mbappe was not the highest-rated player in the game.

PSG teammate Lionel Messi took that accolade, but when you see some of the cards the Frenchman went on to acquire, you'll certainly see it wasn't a bad year for France's superstar.

Team of the Year

Following an impressive season for club and country, it was no surprise to see Mbappe make the grade in the FIFA 22 Team of the Year.

A further boost to his already overpowered left players terrified at the prospect of facing this French striker.

Nominated for the Ballon d'Or and certain to lift it one day, Mbappe will surely be included in the FIFA 23 TOTY.

Team of the Season

Kylian Mbappe's stunning performances in the French top-tier also enabled him to be included in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season, with another 97-rated card arriving for the new king of France.

Another card to be feared in the Weekend League, Mbappe certainly tore teams apart throughout his FIFA 22 journey.

Mbappe in Career Mode

Kylian Mbappe was one of the most exciting pre-contract stars in FIFA 22, but that has all changed now.

With the French superstar signing a bumper new deal at PSG, it's very unlikely you'll be getting your hands on Mbappe at the start of FIFA 23 Career Mode.

That being said, no player is impossible to purchase and if your purse strings stretch far enough, you may just be able to bring Mbappe to your team in FIFA 23.
