Football is a passing game and good passers of the ball are worth their weight in gold. With FIFA 21 scheduled to hit shelves in under a month, on October 9th, we take a look at the players with the best passing stats in the game.
10. Miralem Pjanic: 87 PAS
Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina
Barca’s newest addition, Pjanic does a lot more than he is given credit for. A good call by EA.
9. Hakim Ziyech: 87 PAS
Chelsea signed the Morocco international for an absolute steal. The wizard of Amsterdam will be an impressive addition to Lampard’s Chelsea.
8. Bruno Fernandes: 88 PAS
Club: Manchester United
Fernandes was single-handedly responsible for Manchester United’s third-place finish this season. Among the highest-rated midfielders this season, he also has a great passing stat.
7. David Silva: 88 PAS
Club: Real Sociedad
Despite being well into his thirties, Silva made it into the Team of the Year. Only fitting that he should have a good rating on FIFA.
6. Christian Eriksen: 88 PAS
The Dane is a rather surprising name on the list because he hasn’t impressed at Inter. However, his talent is too good to doubt.
5. Luka Modric: 89 PAS
Club: Real Madrid
Even at 35, the Croatian midfielder has enough in the tank to compete in the top flight. An 89 pass stat is justified for him.
4. Danny Parejo: 90 PAS
The former Valencia captain has joined Villareal and is a valuable addition to Emery’s new-look yellow submarine.
3. Toni Kroos: 91 PAS
Club: Real Madrid
Kroos is one of the best passers in the game. His season ended in another La Liga title and a 91 PAS rating seems only fitting.
2. Lionel Messi: 91 PAS
The best player to ever play the game, Messi has the highest overall this season on the back of another legendary individual season.
1. Kevin de Bruyne: 93 PAS
Club: Manchester City
The best midfielder in the world right now, the Belgian has been rewarded well with the highest passing stat in the game and the PFA Player of the Year award.
Few can argue with the names on this list. While the stats are subject to debate, EA has done a decent job with the passing stats.
FIFA 21 releases on October 9th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
