Bristol City’s intriguing £50m FIFA 22 squad valuation as young stars shockingly under valued

Bristol City fans won’t be too happy to see their best players ranked so lowly by EA Sports...

Most recently, we looked to the virtual world of Football Manager to discover the intriguing market valuations of Bristol City’s squad on their latest game.

The Robins squad came to a valuation came just short of £60m, which gives fans an idea of how much their players are worth to the wider footballing public.

Real life and the world of gaming are two completely different things though, despite game makers trying their best to give an authentic feel to it.

That is why there is other options to fall back on such as Bristol City’s £30m squad market value in the eyes of Transfermarkt, though a knock off of around £20-30m is quite the difference compared to Football Manager, who have a team of dedicated scouts compiling data and later presenting it in the game.

Either way, the valuations of City’s players is an interesting talking point as this summer, there may need to be at least one major sale to help with the clubs finances though Nigel Pearson would like to work with the strongest squad possible. With interest mounting in Antoine Semenyo, Alex Scott and Han-Noah Massengo though, there will be discussions on how much money they can garner the club, as there is profit to be made.

Ultimately those in the Bristol City board room know how much they want for a player and it may differ completely from the values placed in the virtual world.

Below is how City’s players value when you load up the popular ‘Career Mode’ game mode in the well-known and universally played EA Sports franchise FIFA 22.
