With the release of EA's brand new game edging closer, the EA Sports FC rumour mill is spinning and several Ultimate Team details have now been revealed.

As usual, EA will introduce a number of new Icons and FUT Heroes to EA Sports FC 24 and a huge name has just been leaked.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest wingers the world has seen at his peak, Arjen Robben is set for a legendary return in FC 24.

The Dutch winger announced his retirement from football back in July 2021 and we haven't seen him in a FIFA title since then.

So, will the former Netherlands international forward return as an Icon or a FUT Hero?

All time great

Whilst he enjoyed great spells at PSV and Chelsea, Arjen Robben is best known for his time at Bayern Munich.

In August 2009, Robben transferred to the German club for a fee of around €25 million.

In his first season in Munich, Bayern won the league title, Robben's fifth league title in eight years.

Robben scored the iconic winning goal in the 2013 UEFA Champions League final against Dortmund, being named in the Squad of the Season.

In 2014, he was named in the FIFPro World XI and the UEFA Team of the Year and came in at fourth place in the Ballon d'Or rankings.

HE'S BACK - Arjen Robben is returning

In Germany, Robben won 20 trophies, including eight Bundesliga titles and five DFB Pokals.

During his long tenure at Bayern, Robben was also known for his fruitful partnership with fellow winger Franck Ribery – together they were affectionately referred to by the nickname 'Robbery'.

Robben started in the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final, which the Netherlands lost to Spain and also appeared at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 UEFA European Championships, and the 2006 and 2014 FIFA World Cups.

Arjen Robben (OVR 93)

According to various leaks, Robben has been added to the player database and will feature in EA Sports FC 24.

Given the calibre of player, we are talking about here, we are certain Arjen Robben will return as an Icon and not a FUT Hero.

Robben's Prime Icon version could be rated alongside the likes of Marco van Basten, George Best and Roberto Baggio at 93 OVR.

The Dutch legend's Prime Icon could boast some incredible stats including 96 Dribbling, 95 Pace, 94 Shooting and 90 Passing.

Robben is known for being one of the most one-footed players in football and possessed a two-star weak foot throughout his FUT career.

This two-star weak foot would slightly let his Icon card down but that is to be expected. Robben will likely be given four-star skill moves too.

More leaked Icons & Heroes

According to the ever-reliable Fut Sheriff, a number of ex-footballers and greats of the game are currently in testing ahead of the release of EA Sports FC.

The Ultimate Team leaker has stipulated that at this time it is impossible to know which players will be FUT Heroes and which will be Icons.

The full leaked list of players in testing is as follows:

  • Carlos Tevez
  • Vincent Kompany
  • Wesley Sneijder
  • Sergio Aguero
  • Ramires
  • Arjen Robben
  • Arda Turan
