Why are Götze, Cavani, Balotelli missing in FUT?
Many FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) players want to add their favourite player to the FUT squad. But some player can not be found in FUT, although they can be seen in offline game modes.
Individual professional players do not appear in FIFA 21, mostly related to a recent club change, often after releasing the FIFA game. EA Sports usually only reacts much later with an update.
Let's look at six well-known offensive players, which are affected.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
The German-Cameroonian moved from Paris Saint-Germain to Bayern Munich on October 5th. At this point, early access for FIFA 21 was already running. His card can be viewed via Futbin but has not been included in the EA Sports game.
The former AC Milan and Manchester City striker, who beat Germany with his two goals in the semifinals in EURO 2012 - is currently without a club. His contract with Brescia Calcio expired in the summer.
The Croatian is similar to Balotelli. The former Wolfsburg and Bayern professional was under contract with Juventus Turin for many years. In January of this year, the striker moved to Al-Duhail SC in Qatar. Since July, however, the adventure in the desert has also ended. A new contract with the Spanish first division club Celta Vigo has recently been in the room, but without execution.
After his 16th birthday, the young BVB star made his Bundesliga debut on November 21 against Hertha BSC and thus became the youngest player in Bundesliga history. However, the German-Cameroonian still has to wait for his first FUT card. In any case, it will be an exciting wait because Moukoko is considered a storm talent with potential for the world's best.
A world champion is also missing in FIFA 21. The reason is his transfer from Borussia Dortmund to PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands on October 6th. The winning goal scorer of the 2014 World Cup final has to wait for an updated FUT version. So far, only his brother Felix Götze from FC Augsburg can be played in Ultimate Team.
The former PSG striker also changed clubs at the end of the transfer window and, therefore, only at the release of FIFA 21. Since leaving Paris Saint-German, Cavani was temporary without a club and was signed by Manchester United at the last minute. The man from Uruguay is not yet in FUT 21 because he was without a club before the game. Last weekend he scored two goals and provided an assist for United in their 3-2 win over Southampton, which would normally mean an excellent chance for an in-shape version in the Team of the Week. But without an active card in the game, it won't work for the time being, which amazes many fans.
