Summer transfer window season has been hotting up, with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech's transfers to Chelsea already proving to behigh-profile business.
More star-studded transfers are sure to unfold across Europe, with the summer transfer window's end having been pushed back a month due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.
But could this summer's transfers be included in the release of FIFA 21, which will be launched this October? Goal takes a look.
FIFA 21 is set to be released on October 9,2020, while the European summer transfer window will end a few days earlier on October 5in line with UEFA's recommendation due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on football.
The transfer window across Europe was originally set to open onJune 10, closing onSeptember 1, so it will effectively be pushed back a month.
This means that while FIFA 21 could have a large majority of completed early summer transfers already in their system, a number of deals completed on or around deadline day could be added to the game by way of multiple updates.
Deals that were completed in the beginning stages of the transfer window, such as Werner to Chelsea or Leroy Sane to Bayern, for example, would likely already be in the game, while fresher transfers could be added with each update.
Those who decide topre-order the hard copy of the game are sure to have the least updated version of transfers in the system.
"With the Summer Transfer Market in full swing, we have commenced moving players from their old squads to their new ones. Over the course of the next few months, as player transfers are approved in the real-world we will make those same changes inFIFA Ultimate Team.
"We will make these changes as quickly as possible, so expect multiple updates throughout July and August.
"Please note that this only applies to new items found in packs. If you obtained a player item prior to their transfer, their item will not change while in your collection."
