EA Sports added a 99-rated FUTTIES New Transfer version of Lionel Messi to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team today, celebrating his move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain. This special card can be obtained after you complete 10 squad-building challenge (SBC) segments.

Messi left Barcelona after 21 years (including his time with the club’s youth team) to play with some of his Argentinian teammates, Ángel Di María and Leandro Paredes, and to once again join forces with Neymar. He almost renewed his contract with the Catalonian soccer club, but Barcelona was unable to afford a new deal under LaLiga’s financial fair play rules.

This 99-rated FUTTIES New Transfer version of Messi is by far his best card in the game. EA upgraded all of his stats, including Physical (+25), Pace (+13), Defending (+9), Passing (+8), Shooting (+7), and Dribbling (+4), when you compare this card to the Argentinian star’s 93-rated gold version.

What makes this card better than any of Messi’s other cards in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team is the fact that the devs upgraded his four-star skill moves to five stars, which will allow players to reproduce all the dribbling moves available in the game. EA also made Messi a center attacking midfielder (CAM) instead of labeling him as right-winger (RW). This will allow players to transform Messi into a striker (ST), center forward (CF), center midfielder (CM), and center defending midfielder (CDM) if they want to give him 10 chemistry points.

Now that Messi is on Paris Saint-Germain, you’ll have no trouble linking him with some of the best Argentinian cards in the game, such as the 97-rated Summer Stars Di María and 97-rated Path to Glory Paredes. These two players will offer Messi a perfect link, which means you don’t need to use any other Argentinian, Paris Saint-Germain, or Ligue 1 cards around him for chemistry.

This SBC costs around 1.5 million FUT coins on console and 1.6 million FUT coins on PC if you build it from scratch. It will expire on Sept. 30, at the end of the game cycle, so you’ll have plenty of time to craft cards and slowly work your way toward completing this card if you want to.

Here are all the segments that you need to complete to obtain FUTTIES New Transfer Messi. You’ll earn a tradeable pack every time you turn in a squad.
