8 META Midfielders to Sign For Under 300k Coins on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team
Considering FIFA 21 has been out for nearly three months now, it’s safe to assume you’ve racked up a decent amount of coinage that you can spend on bolstering your squad.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of 8 players you can sign to improve one of the most important areas of your team – the midfield.
CDM: IF Valverde
If you’re running a La Liga based squad, Valverde would be a great player to stick in your midfield.
The Real Madrid man boasts an expansive skillset that allows him to perform a range of roles across the midfield.
He can be deployed as a box-to-box midfielder thanks to his passing (81), dribbling (81) and stamina (88).
With a shadow chemistry style, Valverde possesses 96 pace and 88 defending, making him capable of being utilized as a defensive midfielder.
CAM: Bruno Fernandes
Bruno Fernandes is the very definition of clutch. He’s bailed Manchester United out of a ton of seemingly hopeless situations in real life – and he can do the same thing for your team on the virtual pitch.
Bruno boasts 88 passing, which allows him to distribute dangerous through balls to your strikers – he also possesses 89 long shots and a four-star weak foot, which allows him to find the back of the net from range with either foot.
If you’re on the look-out for a quality CAM, you’d do well to sign Fernandes.
CAM: Rulebreakers Reus
Rulebreakers Marco Reus doesn’t have a boatload of pace, but he’s one of the most elegant midfield maestro’s in FIFA 21.
Reus’ dribbling (86), grants him the ability to take players on in 1 v 1 situations.
He also boasts a four-star skill rating which allows him to utilize overpowered skill moves such as the La croqueta cancel and the heel to heel flick.
But while Reus’ dribbling is an asset in itself, his shooting is by far his most important stat.
With a hunter chemistry style, Reus possesses 97 finishing, 93 shot power and 92 attack positioning, all of which combine to make him lethal in the attacking third.
With Reus in your team, trust us when we say, scoring goals will be a piece of cake.
