It seems EA Sports are finally paying their respects to a legend of the game and adding David Beckham to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team with an Icon card.
This year’s FIFA 21 Ultimate Team lineup of Icons (which you will see below) includes everyone from Zinedine Zidane and Diego Maradona to Ronaldinho and Fernando Torres.
Eric Cantona has finally been added into the mix too.
But strangely, there was always one big name missing from the list, and it’s none other than David Beckham.
There’s a reason for it, though.
David Beckham signed an exclusive agreement deal with Konami, the creators of Pro Evolution Soccer, back in 2017.
Now, it seems like that the contract has come to an end after major leaks revealed he might be on his way to FIFA 21.
A leak surfaced deep in the underbelly of the EA Sports FIFA Forums.
It suggested that David Beckham is being added as a new FUT Icon in FIFA 21’s Title Update 5.
Overall Rating – 92
Position – RM (CM as secondary)
Skills – 3 Star
Weak Foot – 4 Star
Work Rate – High/High
Keep in mind, though, that there has been no official word on whether or not these leaks are true. However, the evidence is promising.
Below is an example of what David Beckham’s Icon card is expected to look like in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.
As for when he’s supposedly being added to the game, all the signs point towards FIFA 21’s next-gen launch, which happens on December 4.
