FIFA 21 Record Breakers: Five New Players Released - Van Dijk, Vardy, Donnarumma & more

The FIFA 21 Black Friday promotional has been a whirlwind so far, and it's just got even better!

Five new Record Breakers have been released - taking the total so far to ten - and they include some absolute beauties

Here is what you need to know.

Who's Included?

It's as if Mbappe, David Silva and Jadon Sancho weren't enough!

Five new players have been released, with some seriously big upgrades!

They are as follows:

  • Virgil van Dijk (91 OVR)
  • Jamie Vardy (88 OVR)
  • Gianluigi Donnarumma (87 OVR)
  • Cesc Fabregas (87 OVR)
  • Carlos Vela (87 OVR)

The newly released players are available in packs now and will be available until 6pm GMT on Tuesday, December 2.

Player Overview

Let's take a look at what EA have given us then.

Virgil van Dijk (91 OVR)

We all know how good VVD is in FIFA 21, and he's just got even better!

A season-ending injury means we're unlikely to see any inform versions of the Liverpool centre back this year but fear not, as EA have us covered.

92 defence and 87 physical are pretty absurd, and with 80 defending and 72 dribbling, you could quite realistically play this card at CDM and he'd do a job!

He won't be cheap!

Jamie Vardy (88 OVR)

Speaking of not being cheap, Leicester's Jamie Vardy has seen a huge upgrade to his card.

The 88-rated Record Breaker version of the Englishman has 90-rated pace and 90-rated shooting, what more do you need?

Gianlugi Donnarumma (87 OVR)

This is a very good card indeed.

91-rated diving and 91-rated reflexes head the way for the Italian youngster. Combine that with his 86-rated positioning and 84-rated handling and you've got one of the best keepers in the Serie A.

Cesc Fabregas (87 OVR)

Fabregas has been rolling back the years for Monaco this season, and has now joined the Record Breaker promo.

The Spaniard has a very well rounded card that is headed by 93 passing and 87 dribbling. He'd have a place in most teams.

Carlos Vela (87 OVR)

The final name joining the promo is Mexican Carlos Vela.

The LAFC man has very nice card, including 89 shooting, 88 dribbling and 88 pace. A super sub that will improve any 18.
