EA Sports added a 95-rated FUTTIES version of Daniel James from Manchester United to FIFA 21 today. This item is available through the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

This is James’ second special card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team if you disregard his FUTTIE Nominee version, which didn’t change any of his stats. Players had to vote between a 77-rated James and 76-rated Ollie Watkins from Aston Villa on July 28 to decide who would receive an overall upgrade—and James won.

EA greatly upgraded all of James’ skills, including Shooting (+21), Physical (+20), Passing (+19), Dribbling (+19), Defending (+11), and Pace (+4), when you compare this new card to his 77-rated gold version.

He has high stats such as his 99-rated Pace, 94-rated Dribbling, and 91-rated Shooting. He also has five-star skill moves and a four-star weak foot. If you apply the marksman chemistry style, you’ll increase his Shooting (+6), Dribbling (+5), and Physical (+5), which will maximize almost all of his Dribbling stats, Finishing, and Long Shot stats.

This SBC costs around 319,850 FUT coins on PlayStation, 387,050 on Xbox, and is a bit more expensive on PC (393,950 FUT coins). This card is fairly priced considering his stats and the strong links he can make with legendary Ivorian players and other great cards, such as 92-rated Festival of FUTball (FOF) Batshuayi from Crystal Palace, 87-rated Pépé from Arsenal, and 87-rated FUT Birthday Bailly from Manchester United.

If you’re interested in completing this SBC, you’ll have to turn in six squads: Gold squad, rare gold squad, 78-rated squad, 79-rated squad, Manchester United, and Premier League. You’ll have until Aug. 6 to complete these squads and get this FUTTIES version of James.

That’s a lot of squads to complete, but only one of them is especially expensive, which will cost you around 80,000 FUT coins if you build it from scratch. The others won’t require any special cards or specific nationality, club, or league, costing you around from 5,000 to 30,000 FUT coins. In total, you’ll spend close to 162,000 FUT coins on PlayStation, 234,000 on Xbox, and 165,000 FUT coins on PC.

FUTTIES James has six squads and only six days to complete everything. Here are all the conditions you’ll need to meet to complete all of the FUTTIES James SBC squads:
