FIFA 23 ratings leaks are rampant right now on the internet after an apparent FIFA 22 update unlocked FIFA 23 temporarily for players.

Part of the excitement in the build-up to each annual FIFA release is the ratings reveals. Players want to know who got upgraded, downgraded and who makes it into the top 10 overall. The top 10 for this year, if the leaks are to be believed, showcases some big changes to the best players in the world. Especially those who are fans of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

FIFA 23 Ratings Leak: 10 Highest Rated Players

Here's the top 10 players in FIFA 23, according to an in-game screenshot captured by Twitter user TrustyFutTrader:

  1. Kylian Mbappe - ST / Paris Saint-Germain - 91
  2. Karim Benzema - CF / Real Madrid - 91
  3. Kevin De Bruyne - CM / Manchester City - 91
  4. Lionel Messi - RW / Paris Saint-Germain - 91
  5. Robert Lewandowski - ST / FC Barcelona - 91
  6. Cristiano Ronaldo - ST / Manchester United - 90
  7. Mohamed Salah - RW / Liverpool - 90
  8. Manuel Neuer - GK / FC Bayern Munchen - 90
  9. Virgil Van Dijk - CB / Liverpool - 90
  10. Thibaut Courtois - GK / Real Madrid - 90

Of the apparent top 10, Neymar Jr., Jan Oblak, Harry Kane and Marc-Andre Ter Stegen have been bumped out. Ronaldo and Messi have each been downgraded two overall points and their pace has been heavily decreased. It's also surprising no player is rated 92 or higher considering Messi was 93 and Lewandowski was 92 last year.

As previously mentioned, this is a leak and things could change ahead of the game's release. But, for now, players can start theorizing starter teams with these new ratings.
