With the Gareth Bale transfer saga now over, the marketing team at EA SPORTS can now finalise the FIFA 14 cover ahead of release.
Following a long summer of “will he, won’t he” many questions were asked by the fans about how the transfer would affect the already unveiled FIFA 14 cover. The previously unveiled cover featured Mr. Bale in the 13/14 Spurs kit and eye brows were raised once he sealed his move to Real Madrid. But having moved for a world record fee Gareth Bale will now grace the UK Cover donning a Real Madrid jersey, alongside arguably the world’s greatest in Lionel Messi. This represents the first time that the UK Cover for FIFA does not feature a player currently playing in any of the domestic leagues.
Check out the updated cover below.
