Where do I start. He is my greatest red pick of all time without a single doubt. And I just know that he will carry my Ultimate TOTS wl to a good record. I recommend him on any forward right side position, playing him centrally isn't the greatest because of the 3* wf, but on the wing his 99 curve gives him a beautiful finesse shot even though he lacks not having the finesse shot trait. His passing is also really nice and in his debut alone within 20 minutes (they quit) had 2 assists from great dribbles - I knew from that second he was going to be deadly. It's weird using him like this because when I think of Ángel I think of a skillful, great at dribbling but slow player. However he is rapid and if you see in the video no one is touching him. He is obviously fairly weak, however personally I think he is at that point of physicals where it is good enough - also the lean body type makes up for it and the 99 agility makes it harder for anyone to get close enough to push him off anyway. His shooting is very good, but if you're playing him ram (or rw/ rm etc...) like me then you won't need to use it that much anyway, so when it comes to getting in hard shot positions where maybe you are desperate then he can do the job but i would never be surprised to see him miss if you know what I mean. His defending is surprisingly good and he made some nice important tackles for me over the 8 games I played. Being just under 350k atm is a surprise to me as he is actually incredible and his stats show that.
9.75/10, I put him as this as I think he is a little worse than Depay, but that he is also better than a 9.7. Its hard to compare body types as well. He misses the 0.25 as maybe he could do with a better wf, strength, a little bit higher finishing and balance - other than that he is perfect.

Long shots and shot power
Lean body type
Long passing could be better
After getting him in my red picks I knew I had to put him in my team, I re built my team to put him and I have no regrets. He carried me to my first elite 3 in the one I had to win the last 3 games and Di María scored in the 3 games for me to secure it. I play him as a striker with R9 medium and he outscored him. His finesse shots are op, wont miss any finesse with his left foot and his dribbling is like Neymar. His passes are good. His pace is ok and the only things which I had some problems with him was his weakfoot but he still scored many goals with his right. If you have the coins to buy him and you can fit him into your squad do it you wont regret it.
Finesse Shots with left foot
I have no words. This guy is insane in game he feels like neymar's illegitamate brother with how good his dribbling is. I have him paired up with mbappe up top in a 4312 and he was disgusting.
pace, shooting, dribbling skills
Will sometimes miss with his right like 1/10 times
Where do I start? So i packed him on the 90+ TOTS Deluxe Upgrade and i thought it was an L, but since i had antony tots in his position i thought i could give him a try, and i have none regrets, he's a beast, you get engine on him and nobody can stop him and the shots from outside the box, even though he doesn´t have the finesse shot trait, almost EVERYTHING i try with him is a goal. But that's not everything, his passing is awesome with his left foot, i play him as a CAM so i really have to make very good passes, and BRO he feels like he has aimbot, let's say you are almost on your box, and you see your striker making a run in a 2v1, you just press Y on the xbox controller for a long time and your striker is left alone against the keeper.
but not everything can be perfect about him, even though the 5 star skills moves is pretty great, the 3 stars on weak foot its just, not that good, im pretty sure i only tried to shoot with his right foot like 2 times, and on those 2 times it was ALMOST a goal, but it wasn't and thats the important. overall i think that if you get him on the upgrade or you buy it, is worth it.
-Left foot shooting.
-And overall the 5 star skill moves.
-You can´t really notice the 3 star weak foot, but it's there and you have to keep in mind before you buy him or get him in your 11.
-Maybe his stamina is a little low, but you wont notice unless you play on constant pressure.
-He has a crossbar magnet with his right foot.
