EA Sports is set to release FIFA 23 later this month, leaving football fans in a state of buzz over the rankings and the data of their favourite players.

Real Madrid players are likely to gain strong ratings in this edition of FIFA, especially following their triumph in the UEFA Champions League.

And even though we have a little over three weeks remaining until the game officially launches, FIFA have announced the top 23 highest-rated players in the team, featuring three Real Madrid superstars.

Karim Benzema, after a spectacular season, winning the Champions League and La Liga, has received the highest rating (91) on the game, joint with four other players – Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappe, and Kevin de Bruyne.

Benzema, after all, is a strong contender for the upcoming Ballon d’Or title, having almost single-handedly led Real Madrid to another Champions League crown last season, scoring a total of 44 goals in all competitions.

Thibaut Courtois has been made the joint-highest rated goalkeeper with a tally of 90, along with Manuel Neuer.

Courtois has been in excellent form for more than a couple of years now. The Belgian has become a reliable figure in between the sticks and is arguably the best goalkeeper on the planet right now, having played a crucial role in Real Madrid’s recent redemption.

Casemiro, while a Manchester United player now, has received 89, largely based on his last campaign in Madrid.

One more Real Madrid player featured on this list is Toni Kroos. The German has been rated 88, making him one of the highest-rated midfielders in the game.

Kroos is currently in the final stage of his career, but he has continued to dominate games due to his leadership qualities and ability to offer composure in the middle of the park.

Real Madrid fans are hoping that the former Bayern Munich superstar can continue his excellent form as they brace themselves for yet another tough season ahead, especially with Barcelona now roaring back into the scene.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
