Messi worth his price tag?

Looking to try him out now I can afford him, how is he this year? Would look to use him at RW in 4-3-3 (2).

The M/L puts me off, usually don't enjoy wingers who don't have a high attacking workrate.

Feel free to add thoughts on Suarez and Neymar too, not tried those this year in FUT and I'll be partnering them up with Messi.

    IMO he's not exactly worth 500k if you play him at RW but RF or CF is on the other hand something else. I have played about 700 matches with him so I think I'm not talking nonsense here.

    and I played him hundreds of games on the wing and he is easily worth his current price.. mind u he was worth the 1.2 million when I had first bought him months ago.. so current price is a steal.

    Just to be understood, I didn't say was bulls*it on the wing :) I'm quite certain if you played him at RF or False 9 where he was more efficient!

    RF all the way, shooting, dribbling, finishing, free kicks. He can win matches on his own and is a lot of fun to use

    Cheers guys, the formation will definitely be 4-3-3 (2) so RF isn't an option :)

    Dybala striker with Pereyra RCM and Messi RW is a great way to get whatever going for the rest of it for cheap. in 433 2 that is

    I'm 6 games in with him. 5 goals 4 assists from RW in 4-3-3. I'm really enjoying him, his passing is noticeably a cut above other wingers which is really handy for bypassing OP interceptions this year. Shooting is great and dribbling top notch. Not really got any moans yet apart from a slight one about his stamina.

    Played 14 games, scored 17 and assisted 6. RW in the false nine formation. Shooting is fantastic, especially FK's (they are just guided in). Dribbling is also very good, but imo hazard dribbles better.

    Sold him due to his strength mainly, any, and I mean any defender can nudge him off despite his balance. But he is very clinical, can win you games by scoring multiple goals

    Cheers for the update man, I'm looking forward to trying him now.

    Not for me, no. I used him in the 4321 and just never got much use out of him. I loved using Ronaldo because he just seemed to always be in a position to receive the ball. Messi just wasn't a factor unless I forced him the ball, which I hate doing.

    Messi as a player is fantastic, I play the TOTY @ ST. On the other hand I find wingers nearly useless in any 433 formation so I wouldn't bother putting cash into those positions.

    I use him in a 4312 left striker I start 4321 he good but the star player is Suarez at cam longshots for days.
