We are slowly approaching that time of the year when rumours about sports games start piling up, and of course, being arguably the biggest franchise of them all - FIFA - is always the hottest take for all kinds of speculation.
Naturally, the things that most players want to know about the new iteration of the game each year are proper gameplay updates, new game modes, what new teams and leagues are going to be licensed and so on.
However, these things are usually revealed at official game presentations where developers give an in-depth look of all the new changes and additions.
So, until we start seeing the reveal of such information at various events such as EA Play, we have decided to shift our attention to other areas that might be exciting to the absolutely gigantic population of this mammoth game. And sure enough, a very interesting rumour related to FIFA 21's cover star has popped up on our radar.
Now, even though this is obviously just a rumour, seeing the Belgian grace the cover of the new game isn't too far-fetched at all, given the fact that Manchester City are the official gaming partners with EA Sports.
Of course, even if this rumour does turn out to be true, the City superstar would most likely be featured on the standard version of the game only, if the last year's edition that saw Eden Hazard, Virgil van Dijk and Zinedine Zidane on three different covers is anything to go by.
Still, like we've already said, keep in mind that this is all pure speculation at this point, and as such - it should be taken with a hefty pinch of salt until we get the official word from EA themselves.
