FIFA 14's Ultimate Team Legends are little over two weeks away. EA Canada's historic batch of players will be available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One from Nov. 22, but in the buildup to release, the developer has slowly revealed player ratings for each item.

Before we look at the top-rated individuals, you can check numbers 43-31 here, 30-21 here and 20-11 here. All set?

Let's finally start to consider the top 10.

10. George Weah, 89

9. Ruud van Nistelrooy, 90

8. Romario, 90

7. Dennis Bergkamp, 90

6. Luis Figo, 90

5. Ruud Gullit, 90

4. Marco van Basten, 91

3. Lothar Matthaus, 91

2. Paolo Maldini, 92

1. Pele, 95

Notable Inclusions

Let’s not waste any time here. As expected, this final set of player ratings highlights some truly insane statistics from stars who have defined football across the last few decades.

While Pele’s array of 90-rated stats are to be expected, George Weah’s rating should be available for a much smaller price than the Brazilian hero. Weah’s increased height will make him deadly from set-piece situations and should fill the void for anyone looking to purchase Pele, although expect him to set you back at least a few hundred thousand.

Paolo Maldini’s variation will be near priceless on FIFA 14.

His 86-rated speed, 91-rated defence and 87-rated heading ensure he is the best centre-back on the game. His 6’2” frame and M/H work rates also define a player who has the ability to boss any forward put in front of him. Considering the power of headers in this year's game, expect Maldini to rack up plenty of goals.

Ruud Gullit’s physicality is matched with speed, weak-foot effectiveness and an affinity for scoring goals. The long-haired Dutchman is likely to have higher total stats than anyone else on the game; his main attributes are sitting at 80 and above.

Those who receive any of these items in a pack should consider themselves lucky. Legends are likely to be extremely rare, and should you land one in a pack, could easily fund a top team or two. Just remember, the earlier you get them the more costly they are likely to be.
