It’s that time of year again when one lucky person with access to the new version of FIFA can’t resist the temptation to upload images of player ratings on to social media.
Manchester United’s FIFA 17 player ratings have already done the rounds today - although there’s a question mark over whether they’re real or fake - and now Real Madrid’s and Barcelona’s have followed.
Unsurprisingly, it seems Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the two highest-rated players in the game - once again. Ronaldo is handed a 93 rating this year, while Messi is 94 this year. (Scroll down to see the full player ratings of both teams).

Ronaldo is the only player rated over 90 in the Real Madrid squad. Gareth Bale is only 87, although both Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos are 88.
Barcelona, on the other hand, have three players in the 90s - no prizes for correctly guessing who they are.
Luis Suarez is handed a 90 rating after scoring 59 goals in 53 matches last season while Neymar is rated 91 this year.
