The first batch of EA Sports’ FIFA 23 top 23 players was recently released and while the usual suspects topped the list, there were some sheer surprises, to say the very least.

Among the players, as many as two Real Madrid players were rated 90 or above which included club captain Karim Benzema and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. As it stands, the former is one of the five players to have received a 91 rating, which is the highest.

The list includes Benzema himself, Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Kevin De Bruyne. Courtois, on the other hand, is rated 90 as he sits in the same line as Manuel Neuer.

Meanwhile, midfield generals Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are both rated 88. Interestingly enough, there is a decline of one unit from the passing attribute of the German from the previous edition of the game. This year, his passing is rated 90.

As far as Modric is concerned, his passing has been kept at 89 while his dribbling capabilities are rated 88. Dribbling and shooting remain the major difference between the two Real Madrid midfielders as while the Croatian’s shooting technique is 76, the German stands at 81.

Up next on the list is new signing Antonio Rudiger. The German international, who arrived on a free transfer in the summer, is an 87-rated defender. His pace (82) outperforms even the club captain Karim Benzema. His physicality is an 85-rated attribute while his defending has been kept at 86.

Above the German, among defenders, are Marquinhos (88) and Virgil van Dijk (90). Meanwhile, another Real Madrid defender rated above 85 is a certain David Alaba. The versatile Austrian defender is rated 86 with his defending kept at 85 and passing at 83.

As far as Vinicius Jr. is concerned, the star forward is rated 86 in FIFA 23. With a pace of 95 and dribbling at 90, the Brazil international is one of the quickest players in the video game which will be launched worldwide on September 30.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
