With rating season just around the corner, the hype is starting to build as we look forward to finding out our top-rated star.

Mbappe on Top

Kylian Mbappe has once again been revealed as the face of the FIFA franchise, with the PSG star donning the front of the FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition.

A superstar in his own right who closed down Ronaldo and Messi in the FIFA 22 ratings, we think this year he may end up as the best player.

FACE OF THE FRANCHISE - Mbappe is the FIFA 23 cover star

A bumper contract at PSG and another successful season in Paris will no doubt see Mbappe become a strong contender, with French football's next sensation certainly in with a shout to be FIFA 23's highest-rated star.

With a rating as high as 93 potentially being offered to Mbappe, this year's game could finally mark the end of the Messi and Ronaldo dominance in FIFA.


Other Contenders

Mbappe won't be the only one staking a claim to be the top star in FIFA 23, with a number of fellow professionals set to challenge his crown.

The French sensation may have an advantage, but could these top-performing stars pip him to the post?

Erling Haaland

Moving from Dortmund to Manchester City in the biggest move of the window so far, Erling Haaland could be in with a shout to be the top-rated star in FIFA 23.

NEW MAN - Haaland's move to City has generated plenty of interest

At a young age, cultivating a relationship with another young player could also be key, as EA Sports look to get people on their side ahead of their split with FIFA.


Cristiano Ronaldo

He may be a wantaway star at this moment in time, but that doesn't mean Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't have a good shout of being the highest-rated player in FIFA 23.

A phenomenon who is coming to the end of his illustrious career, could EA give the Portuguese star one last spin on top?

Having said that, maybe there's space for both Messi and Ronaldo at the top of the FIFA 23 rating pile...
