FIFA 20 Player Puts Cristiano Ronaldo As Manchester United Manager And Signs Lionel Messi

FIFA 20 Player Puts Cristiano Ronaldo As Manchester United Manager And Signs Lionel Messi

A YouTuber has put Cristiano Ronaldo as Manchester United manager in FIFA 20 and then signed Lionel Messi.

It was revealed last month that players who retire in career mode can go on to become managers in that save file.

Screenshots showed Messi as Newcastle United boss, Ronaldo in charge of Sampdoria, Wayne Rooney as Derby County boss among other weird appointments.

However, the weirdest one has now been posted as Cristiano Ronaldo becomes boss of Manchester United and then signs Messi for his side.

Check out the video below.

As you can tell by the thumbnail, Lionel Messi is taller than Cristiano Ronaldo at their initial meeting.

Not sure how that works considering Ronaldo is 6 foot 2 and Messi is 5 foot 7 but there you go.

United break their transfer record to sign the Argentine, spending $120 million and paying him $380,000 a week.

This is a a significant reduction on the $640,000 that he currently earns at Barcelona.

A sign on bonus of $2.7 million and a further $10.8 million after 25 appearances for the club is also included in the lucrative deal.

The season is then simulated to the final day and United can win the title on the final day.

The pressure is on as United line-up with polarising figures such as Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard.

Up steps Messi.

The goal starts off following some lovely link-up play with Marcus Rashford who you think could be the perfect foil for Messi in real life.

He then steps up to the plate and volleys in a beautiful left-footed strike to give United the lead.

The game stays 0-0 until former Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho steps up to give United a nervy last few minutes.

But it didn't matter.

The duo of Messi and Ronaldo combined together to deliver the first Premier League trophy at Old Trafford since the Sir Alex Ferguson era.

Messi lifts the trophy as captain while his manager looks on glowingly after delivering a big trophy back to the team that helped him become a superstar.

Manchester United fans will be dreaming about this scenario tonight, but maybe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can one day deliver Premier League glory at Old Trafford.
