Part of the fun of FIFA 21 is that it's not just current stars that you can get into your Ultimate Team squad. Oh no.

The icons cards are part and parcel of FUT and three new icons have been added to the game's SBCs. Manchester United, Fulham and Ajax legend Edwin van der Sar, Inter Milan captain Javier Zanetti and Real Madrid, Barcelona and Inter midfielder Luis Figo are all now available. 

So how do you get these bad boys in your line-up? All of these options are extremely expensive if you're buying the players for the squads from scratch. Should you have some valuable players in your squad though, it never goes a miss to see what you can cash in for a better model...

By far the costliest squads you'll have to assemble, perhaps unsurprisingly, belong to Galactico Luis Figo. You're going to have to build a whopping eight different teams just to get this card.

The van der Sar challenges are considerably cheaper. Still, you'll have to build six whole squads to get this iconic goalkeeper - perhaps worth it, if you enjoy switching up your defence often.
