Best Untradeable FIFA 21 Players You Can Get for Free (For the Most Part)


by in Sports Games | Mar, 17th 2021

I’m sure you guys know that certain players in FIFA 21 don’t cost any coins. Yep, we’re talking about free players here. And they’re far from your typical fodder. Most of these free players are more than suitable for your starting 11.

What is this magical way of getting free players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team? Squad-building challenges and objectives – that’s what!

You can get a ton of top-tier untradeable players by solving squad-building challenges and completing objectives. At the moment, you can get your hands on a couple of real bangers in both sections. Objectives for Reinier, Fofana, and Cucurella are out of the equation, but there are still fine names to snatch out there. Benedetto and Neves are the best options right now, with more bound to come in the coming days. 

The same goes for squad building challenges – Cavani, Gundogan, Busquets, and many Icon Prime Moment cards. The requisitions are high, but there are those you can find without wasting too much money.

Yeah, remember when we said that our best untradeable players are all free? Well, you might need to buy a player or two for SBC stars… though it all depends on the depth of your club.

Best Untradeable Players | SBC Options


Squad building challenges always have a ton of exciting stuff for you to solve. We’re mostly talking about all sorts of tradeable and untradeable packs. But FIFA 21 Ultimate Team has featured plenty of top-tier players too. We’re talking real weekend league potential here, players that ought to make a difference in those crucial matches.

POTM ePL Gundogan | 88 OVR


The last POTM ePL iteration of City’s midfield maestro was an 86 OVR CM card. It’s been a major part of ePL builds across the skill spectrum, but now seems to be the perfect time for an upgrade. And what better way to upgrade it than with a slightly better version of the card?

88 OVR Gundogan is another excellent all-around solution for ePL midfields. It requires the following:

Premier League

  • ePL players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 84
  • Team chemistry min 70

Manchester City

  • Manchester City players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 80
  • Team chemistry min 75
  • Flashback Cavani | 90 OVR

This is a sick card! We’ve all been waiting for Cavani’s special card, and now it’s finally here. 90 OVR, the Uruguayan superstar, brings forth excellent stats across the board. He’s got the pace, he’s got proper shooting boots, and he’s got the strength to wrestle defenders down before nailing one past the keeper.

Here’s what you’ll need to get Flashback Cavani, one of the best untradeable players you can get in FIFA 21 at the moment:

El Matador

  • Napoli players min 1
  • TOTW players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 83
  • Team chemistry min 75

League Finesse

  • Premier League players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 86
  • Team chemistry min 50

El Goleador in Paris

  • PSG players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 84
  • Team chemistry min 70

Icon Kluivert | 92 OVR


Cavani and Kluivert are pretty similar in terms of what they bring to the table. Similar pace, similar shooting; everything is within five points difference (not counting defensive attributes). However, Kluivert is an icon and, as such, can be paired up with all sorts of players, but this also means it’s much more expensive than Cavani. If you own an ePL squad, Cavani is a no-brainer. If, however, you have something else in mind, Kluivert is a marvelous card!

You’ll need some money to solve Kluivert unless you have half a team of 90ish OVR fodder to sacrifice, that is. Here’s what you’ll need:

Born Legend

  • Rare players exactly 11
  • Player quality exactly bronze
  • Team chemistry min 50

Golden Generation

  • Ajax players min 1
  • TOTW/FUT Champions players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 80
  • Team chemistry min 80

Rising Star

  • Rare players exactly 11
  • Player quality exactly silver
  • Team chemistry min 50

Oranje

  • Netherlands players min 1
  • TOTW/FUT Champions players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 83
  • Team Chemistry min 75

Rossoneri

  • Milan players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 85
  • Team chemistry min 70

Blaugrana

  • FC Barcelona players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 86
  • Team chemistry min 55

League Finesse

  • ePL players min 1
  • TOTW/FUT Champions players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 86
  • Team chemistry min 50

Showdown Rudiger | 86 OVR


If you’ve missed out on Fofana, here’s another chance at snatching a viable CB for your ePL team. Showdown Rudiger, 86 OVR, brings forth a pacey solution to your defensive issues. Seventy-seven paces coupled with 86 physical and 87 defending are not bad for a card that doesn’t even require many good players in exchange.

Here are the squads required for this outstanding center back:

Chelsea

  • Chelsea players min 1
  • TOTW players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 83
  • Team chemistry min 80

League Finesse

  • ePL players min 1
  • Team overall rating min 85
  • Team chemistry min 60

Best Untradeable Players | Objectives


Now we’re getting to the best untradeable players obtained outside of the SBC system. As the heading suggests, we’re talking about objectives here! Player objectives come and go; at the moment, there are three beast cards you need to consider getting your hands on.

LP Benedetto | 88 OVR


The French Ligue 1 has an astonishing number of unique attack-minded cards. However, Benedetto might be one of the best untradeable players out there. Even if you don’t have a Ligue 1 team, he’s more than a decent replacement for your current supersubs. He’s strong, fast, and great on the ball. Don’t even get me started on his goalscoring ability.

To get the 88 OVR League Player Benedetto, you need to complete the following five objectives:

  • Win 15 matches using only Ligue 1 players in your starting 11
  • Score 30 goals using Ligue 1 players
  • Assist 20 goals using Ligue 1 players
  • Score an outside of the box goal using Ligue 1 players in four separate matches
  • Score a finesse goal using Ligue 1 players in six separate matches

All objectives are based around the FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece mode.

LP Neves | 89 OVR


Ruben Neves just got his special card. League player Ruben Neves is an 89 OVR beast – he’s a perfect fit for any ePL squad type. He can also be a good midfield maestro for squads built around TOTY Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Here’s what you need to do to bolster your squad with one of the best Premier League CMs in the game:

  • Win 15 matches using only Premier League players in your starting 11
  • Score 30 goals using Premier League players
  • Assist 20 goals using Premier League players
  • Score a goal from a cross using Premier League players in four separate matches
  • Score a finesse goal using Premier League players in six separate matches

All objectives are based around the FUT Friendly: Managerial Masterpiece mode.

If your primary team focuses on the Italian Serie A, the 89 OVR LP Pastore might be a good option. The requirements are the same, and his stats suggest he’s worth a shot.
