FifaBUDDING gamers will have to opt for FIFA17 next season if they want to play as Ronaldo or Messi.

La Liga is giving its naming rights exclusively to EA Sports next season, freezing out fierce competitor PES2017.

It means no teams or player from the Spanish league will be present in the PES game.

The deal was announced in a joint statement by La Liga ambassador Fernando Morientes and EA Sports bosses at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

During the presentation, former Real Madrid, Liverpool and Valencia player Morientes showed that he is just as talented with a controller as he beat EA Sports marketing manager, Yeray Romera, in a FIFA17 match.
