It’s been seven years since Sir Alex Ferguson left, but Manchester United are still trying to find their feet and return to the glory days.
The summer transfer window was a largely disappointing one for Man Utd fans, but they do still have a pretty decent squad on FIFA 21, coming in with a 4.5-star rating.
Donny van de Beek, Alex Telles, Edinson Cavani and Facundo Pellestri have come in, while a number of names left Old Trafford. But how did the business, and the season so far, affect Man Utd’s overall standings? Who is their number one player? And who could do with a boost?
We’ve got you covered. Read on for Man Utd’s FIFA 21 player ratings and stats in full.
Squad list and ratings based on players in latest downloadable update at time of publication on PS5 version of FIFA 21 (18/01/2021).
Man Utd’s FIFA 21 ratings: Goalkeepers
David de Gea hasn’t had the best few years in goal, with more mistakes creeping into his game. And that has been reflected in FIFA, with his rating dropping to 86, though that is still among the top shot-stoppers in the Premier League. But now he has been joined by Dean Henderson, returning from his loan at Sheffield United, with a decent rating of 80 (the same as Sergio Romero).

Man Utd’s FIFA 21 ratings: Defenders
Defence is arguably the weakest part of Man Utd’s squad, and it was no surprise to see them add Alex Telles to their books on deadline day. A delayed addition to the FIFA 21 squad, Telles flew straight in to become the club’s top-rated defender at 84. Trailing one behind the Brazilian is Aaron Wan-Bissaka, with a rating of 83, after his boost of two from FIFA 20. Harry Maguire has dropped to 81 while either Eric Bailly or Victor Lindelof would complete the highest-rated Man Utd back four, both at 79. Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Ethan Laird are both still in the squad, with winter transfer updates not expected to come in until February.
Man Utd defender ratings for FIFA 21: Alex Telles (84), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (83), Harry Maguire (81), Luke Shaw (80), Victor Lindelof (79), Eric Bailly (79), Phil Jones (75), Marcos Rojo (75), Brandon Williams (75), Axel Tuanzebe (74), Timothy Fosu-Mensah (73), Ethan Laird (66), Teden Mengi (65).
Man Utd’s FIFA 21 ratings: Midfielders
Probably Man Utd’s biggest signing of the summer was the arrival of Donny van de Beek from Ajax, and the Dutch midfielder has been given a decent rating of 83 on FIFA 21. But he does still trail Man Utd’s top midfielder, Bruno Fernandes (88), who leapfrogged Paul Pogba following his fall from FIFA 20, though the Frenchman does have five-star skills. FIFA 21 also sees Marcus Rashford (also five-star skills) start the game as a midfielder, having received that upgrade midway through last season and Mason Greenwood is also included among the midfield.
Man Utd midfielder ratings for FIFA 21: Bruno Fernandes (87), Paul Pogba (86), Marcus Rashford (85), Donny van de Beek (83), Fred (81), Nemanja Matic (80), Juan Mata (79), Scott McTominay (79), Jesse Lingard (77), Daniel James (77), Mason Greenwood (77), Facundo Pellistri (71), Ethan Galbraith (63).

Man Utd’s FIFA 21 ratings: Forwards
Man Utd made one attacking signing over the summer, with Edinson Cavani coming in on a free transfer. And, after fans were made to wait due, the Uruguayan is now in their FIFA 21 squad. Cavani wasn’t initially at the Red Devils because, at the time of FIFA 21’s release, Cavani did not have a team, so would not have needed to be added. But now he is, and he is tied with Anthony Martial as their best striker (though there isn’t much competition).
Man Utd forward ratings for FIFA 21: Edinson Cavani (84), Anthony Martial (83), Odion Ighalo (75), Amad Diallo (64).
