FIFA 13: Messi to replace Rooney on front cover – Report

By Dave Cook, Monday, 20 August 2012 11:39 GMT

FIFA 13 will be the first game in EA’s sports series that will not feature Manchester United star Wayne Rooney on the front cover in seven years, CVG sources have suggested.

Rooney’s contract with EA Sports is said to be expired, leaving Lionel Messi in the frame to feature on the FIFA 13 cover, as well as some other emerging talent.

EA is expected to make the announcement today.
