OVERPOWERED GK: Courtois' base card was already one of the best 'keepers in FIFA as he stands at 6 feet 5 inches

Real Madrid's goalie Thibaut Courtois has received his second in-form in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

91 reflexes and 91 handling along with 88 positioning and 88 kicking make the Belgian one of the best goalkeepers in Ultimate Team.

Coutois' height makes him an already overpowered card in-game, so the stat boosts are a welcome bonus!

Cost

Upon the card's arrival into the FUT 21 market - it is currently costing 250,000 coins on PS4 and as much as 400,000 on Xbox One.

Expectedly, Courtois' price will drop over time.

Potential links

When it comes to links, Real Madrid centre-halfs are the best option to give Courtois easy chemistry, and we aren't short of quality choices!

The Madrid centre-back's 87 pace, 92 defending and 88 physical speak for themselves.

The UCL RTTF Varane does come at a heavy price, coming in at over 1 million coins on both PlayStation and Xbox.

However, you can pick up normal or in-form versions for significantly cheaper and are still great options.

SAFE HANDS: Jan Oblak's 93-rated card looks incredible

Jan Oblak's UCL RTTF seems like a great cheaper alternative, coming in at 160,000 coins on PlayStation and 165,000 on Xbox.

The Atletico 'keeper's 94 handling, 93 reflexes and 91 diving will make him a tough man to beat in net!

Verdict

SIF Courtois is definitely worth buying in FUT 21, but it is logical to wait a few days to purchase him.

Once Team of the Season arrives, the transfer market will crash and you'll be able to pick him up much cheaper.

So yes, if you're looking for a quality GK in FIFA, Courtois is your man, but wait until his price drops before you splash your cash!
