FIFA 23 rating season is just around the corner, as fans around the globe clench their fists in anger as their favourite stars fail to obtain the rating they deserve.
One team that won't be receiving many - if any - major upgrades this season is Manchester United, with the Red Devils slumping to a miserable start to the Premier League season.
Things couldn't have started much worse for Erik Ten Hag and Manchester United in the 22/23 season, with the Red Devils losing their opening 2 games and currently sitting bottom of the Premier League table.
With 6 goals shipped and only 1 scored, United are looking desperate and in a worse state than anyone could have foreseen.
A 4-0 loss at Brentford compounded a miserable week for United, with lingering issues like the future of Cristiano Ronaldo also failing to help the mood around Old Trafford.
All this makes for bleak reading and it doesn't look like United fans will be able to use FIFA as an escape this year.
Manchester United have always boasted a strong squad in FIFA, but that could all be about to change when FIFA 23 rolls around.
There's every chance that Manchester United won't have a single player in the 90s and, if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves before the end of the Transfer Window, there's every chance they won't have a player in the high 80s.
With Pogba and Cavani departed, the only other highly-rated players in United's squad are Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho, with both players set for downgrades following disappointing seasons
Leaked ratings appear to have shown downgrades for other United players such as Rashford, Fred and De Gea, with no Red Devils player safe from the chop.
All this would combine to make Manchester United's squad rating potentially the lowest we've ever seen in FIFA, with more unwanted history attributed to this struggling squad.
Career Mode Challenge
There is some good news, especially for Career Mode fans in FIFA 23.
United's downfall means that Old Trafford could be the perfect place for a revival Career Mode, with plenty of scope for ripping up the squad and starting again.
With gaping holes in every position, United are in desperate need of a rebuild, and starting your FIFA 23 career at Old Trafford could be just the ticket for a unique challenge in this year's game.
