FIFA 17 to lose Lionel Messi off the cover? His contract is up with EA

Lionel Messi’s contract is up…with EA Sports.

The Argentine superstar has been involved with theFIFAseries since appearing on the cover ofFIFA Street, followed byFIFA 13, 14, 15and16.

But his four year deal has reportedly come to an end, andaccording to French newspaperL’Equip(viaDaily Mail),he’s unlikely to sign a new contract.

Thismeans we could have a new cover star forFIFA 17,but with teammate Neymar contracted to Konami’sPESseries, the favourite to take over is Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez.
