EA Sports have announced their legends line-up for FIFA 16 at Xbox Gamescom which will include the addition of Manchester United stars George Best and Ryan Giggs to the game.

It gets better. Every FIFA 16 Ultimate Team player will receive one legend on a three-match loan when they start

Former Porto and Barcelona man Vitor Baia was first to be announced by EA Sports's Nick Channon. The goalkeeper also won 80 caps for Portugal.

AC Milan legends Alessandro Nesta and Gennaro Gattuso will appear on the game too - the pair having won two Champions League winners medals each while with the Milan club.

Ajax goalscoring machine Jari Litmanen is another to make the cut. The ex-Finland international scored 91 times in 159 league appearances for the Dutch giants between 1992-1999. Litmanen went on to sign for Liverpool in 2001 but struggled due to reoccurring ankle problems.

Deco won the Champions League, La Liga and FA Cup all on two occasions, along with the Premier League title in his final season at Chelsea. The 37-year-old's inclusion comes as no surprise.

Next up was full back Javier Zanetti who made over 950 career appearances in a professional career spanning 22 years, the majority coming with Inter Milan.

Regardless of all the other star names added to the game, George Best and Ryan Giggs are the stand-out figures that are sure to be encouraging players to open FUT packs in search of two icons of one of the world's biggest clubs.

Another new tweak was announced during Gamescom which changes the way that legends earn chemistry with other players.

According to Squawka, Channon said: “Every player will match leagues with FUT Legends, meaning they will have an orange link with all players. Now you only need to pair Nationality between a player and a Legend to create the strong green link on the pitch.

"So, if you are building a squad with all new Legend Deco, he’ll have a medium connection with Oscar but a strong connection with his fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo.”

FIFA 16 is set to be released in late September.
