Lionel Messi’s destination for the 2021-22 football season may not be known at this time, but we do know this: the Argentinian football star is LaLiga’s Player of the Month. The FIFA 21 team confirmed on March 5 that FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi won the honor, and a brand new Squad Building Challenge went live as a result. Players will have the chance to get their hands on a whopping 96 OVR card of Messi, but be prepared to pay the price.
