On top of this, all cover stars have leaked via tags in FIFA website. Players have found data that reveals four names - PSG's Kylian Mbappe, who will most likely be the main cover star, Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is probably on The Champion Edition of the game. 

Furthermore, Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland and Atletico Madrid's Joao Felix are also found in the code, which suggests that this year's FIFA could have four editions.It is also possible that Haaland and Joao Felix are featured on a single cover, potentially for the Ultimate Edition.

Judging by this leak, it seems that earlier rumours about Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne as the main cover star were wide off the mark. Some football fans will probably be disappointed to hear this since the midfielder had a cracking season and could easily replace Joao Felix on the list but it seems that EA's marketing team think differently. 

FIFA 2021 is coming to both current-gen and next-gen consoles and PC. The release date is set for October 9, 2020.
