FIFA Ultimate Team is just as addictive as when you used to swap football stickers in the playground and, just like in the halcyon days of Got, Got, Need, it’s going to cost you. If you’re a little short in the way of virtual coin, though, here are the 10 best FIFA 18 Ultimate Team bargains you can pick up without breaking the bank.

The disclaimer: prices can and will fluctuate depending on Squad Building Challenges, demand, and even which platform you’re playing on. Please take these prices as a guide only.

1. Tom Heaton (GK)

Potential cost: 700

Need to know: Fresh off producing the goalkeeping heroics for Burnley that earned him an England call-up, Heaton gets a much-deserved FIFA 18 Ultimate Team boost. Thankfully for your wallet, not many people have noticed his great stats. His 83 reflexes see him go to toe-to-toe (or should that be glove-to-glove) with the world’s best keepers.

2. Mario Gaspar (RB)

Potential cost: 1,000

Need to know: There’s a reason this guy is featured both here and on last year’s FIFA 17 Ultimate Team bargains list: he’s bloody good. Possessing some of the best all-round stats for any full-back in the game, as well as a frankly ridiculous 81 shot power, Gaspar will be a threat on the attack as well as rock solid at the back. A must-buy.

3. Layvin Kurzawa (LB)

Potential cost: 500

Need to know: Don’t let his non-rare status fool you – this guy can mix it with the best of them. A snip at only 500 coins, if you’re looking for an extremely cheap and reliable full-back then PSG’s Kurzawa is your man. Sure, he may lack the abilities of some of his star-studded team-mates, but he’s a fantastic tackler and solid on the ball to boot.

4. Sebastian Coates (CB)

Potential cost: 1,000

Need to know: The ex-Liverpool man has undergone something of a renaissance in recent times. Even so, we didn’t realise he’d turned into a freakishly strong centre-half, as his 93 strength will attest. Even if you can somehow out-muscle the big man, he’ll keep nipping at your heels with that 82 aggression of his.
