Kevin De Bruyne (94 IF)

Kevin De Bruyne has had an exceptional season for Manchester City so far, cementing himself as one of the best midfielders in the world.

With a massive 17 assists in the Premier League this season, De Bruyne earned himself a second In-form rated 94 OVR. Surely this card will return in FUT Player Days.

Kylian Mbappe (93 IF)

Mbappe fut player days fifa 20

At just 21 years old, Kylian Mbappe is already considered amongst the top echelon of strikers. With 30 goals in 32 games this season it looks like the Frenchman is just getting better and better.

If he were to be included in the new promo, it would likely be Mbappe’s third In-Form, rated at 93 OVR, that would become available in packs.
