Gamers are counting down the days until the release of FIFA 17.

EA Sports’ incredibly popular football game is released on September 29 (September 27 for those lucky folk in North America) as another year of Ultimate Team awaits.

But Ultimate Team, the hugely popular feature whereby gamers trade for players, isn’t the only feature that awaits in this year’s edition of the game. There’s the all-new story mode, where players control the life of Alex Hunter on and off the field.

And, of course, career mode returns. Play against Manchester United and you will now see Jose Mourinho standing on the opposing dugout, while you can also manage any club in the Japan J1 League for the first time.

The one thing that we all look for when deciding which team to take over is their transfer budget. Where’s the fun in managing a club that you can’t even improve?

Fortunately, those who plan to manage Europe’s biggest teams can begin their transfer plans after the budgets of Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain were leaked.

It’s fair to say EA Sports have taken into account the past transfer window in estimating their transfer budgets.

United and City have money to blow

United’s kitty comes in at £122,134,856, while their neighbours have a budget of £100,981,872.

Considering both clubs have spent over £150m in the summer transfer window, both teams having a nine-figure budget seems fair.

If you plan on being PSG, you’ll have £93,237,112 to buy Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s replacement. Madrid, meanwhile, have a budget of £89,024,592 according to the leak.

The leak was shared by Twitter user @MaximumMartial, a Man United fan, and fans of the Red Devils responded by naming who they will buy with their £122m.

Player ratings

Not that United’s team will need strengthening too much. Player ratings have been linked and David de Gea (91) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (90) are the two highest-rated players in the Premier League, with Paul Pogba coming in at 87.

Man City’s best player is Sergio Aguero, who has an 89 rating.
