PRE ORDER FIFA 21

FUT 100

Xavi is one of the highest profile additions among the 11 new ICONs arriving on FUT 21.

With a trophy cabinet full to bursting, Xavi is one of the greatest midfielders in the history of the game.

His midfield partnership with Andres Iniesta is arguably the best there has ever been, and we would love to see Iniesta as an ICON when he hangs up his boots.

One World Cup, Two European Championships, Four Champions League and Eight La Liga titles. Xavi is a worthy addition to the FUT 100.

Ratings Prediction

With four versions of each ICON likely, Xavi’s base card could be rated 88 OVR.

The Spaniard’s ratings will only increase with potential ratings of 90, 92 and 94!

With so many potential career highlights, it is tough to say what his ICON moments card will be based off.

It is difficult to look past the World Cup win though, with Xavi rewarded for his performances by being named in the Team of the Tournament.

Best Links

ICONs need players of the same nationality or other ICON cards to form green chemistry links on Ultimate Team.

Spain have always been blessed with top class midfielders, so there are plenty to pair with Xavi.

His former Barca teammate Sergio Busquets is the highest rated Spanish central midfielder, although it may leave your team short of pace in the centre of the park.

A La Liga team seems the best fit for Xavi, although Jose Callejon in Serie A could provide a strong link from the right hand side.
