EA Sports added an 87-rated FUT Birthday version of Renato Sanches from Lille to FIFA 21 today. This item will be available through the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Sanches is a part of the second set of FUT Birthday cards. The FUT Birthday promo features players with a five-star upgrade to either their skill moves or their weak foot rating.

This is Sanches’ third special card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. EA mainly upgraded his Pace (+20) rating and generally increased his other stats, including Pace (+11), Dribbling (+5), Shooting (+4), Passing (+4), and Defending (+3), when compared to his 85-rated gold version. His skill moves were upgraded to five stars while his weak foot remained at four stars.

FUT Birthday Sanches costs around 745,350 FUT coins on PlayStation 4, 683,150 on Xbox One, and has a higher price on PC (833,250 FUT coins). This is generally a good card and you can improve his Pace (+10) and Defending (+8) even further by applying the shadow chemistry style.

If you want to complete the FUT Birthday Sanches SBC, you’ll need to build three squads: Bayern München, Bundesliga, and National Duty. You’ll have until April 23 to complete these squads.

The first solution requires an 85-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum and at least one player from Bayern Munich. The second squad asks for an 86-rated team with 65 chemistry minimum, one Inform card, and one player from Bundesliga. The third one needs to be an 87-rated squad with 50 chemistry minimum and one player from Portugal.
