The following payers enjoyed extraordinary debut seasons at their current club. Here’s a list of the best FUT Signature Signings from worst to best.
Best FUT Signature Signings: ranked list
If you were lucky enough to get one of the 14 Signature Signings player items available in packs, chances are you’ve got an above-average player on your hands.
Even if you’ve packed one of the early names on this list, many of the current SBCs available require a Signature Signings item. Therefore, even a Signature Signings player you don’t intend on using has a lot of value.
- Raul Jiménez
- Jesper Karlsson
- Ridle Baku
- Andrej Kramaric
- Marcus Edwards
- Gelson Martins
- Axel Witsel
- Edouard Mendy
- Diego Carlos
- Milan Škriniar

The five best Signature Signings in Ultimate Team
5. Rúben Dias
The 2020/2021 Premier League defender of the year is the first of two Manchester City players to earn a Signature Signings item. This 89 overall Dias is a monstrous defender. The Portuguese international is available at around 310,000 coins.
Players may have concerns with his 76 pace but the defender truly doesn’t feel that heavy or clunky. His defending and physical stats are out of this world. There are a ton of great options at right-back to pair with Dias. His Manchester City teammates João Cancelo and Kyle Walker are fantastic choices.

The center-back boasts a high defensive work rate and is easy to link thanks to his Premier League association. Also, an underrated short passing stat of 87 makes him feel like a confident option on the ball.
4. Marcos Llorente
Marcos Llorente’s base card was one of the best midfield options at launch. This special item expands on much of what made him a stellar choice. This card works best at CM thanks to the high attacking work rate.
His pace is excellent for a central midfielder. Llorente is the ideal all-rounder at his position. He does most things really well without truly being exceptional in one given category. He can recover lost balls, dribble past the opponent, and set up goals for your forwards.
The one glaring issue is the fact that this card’s price is currently inflated. Players can scoop up Llorente for around 490,000 coins. This is a steep price for a card that boasts minor upgrades.
3. Renato Sanches
Although Renato Sanches’ overall is not as high as most of the players on this list, his current valuation of around 750,000 should tell you a little bit about how excellent this item is. For starters, the high/high work rate is exceptional for a midfielder that can be utilized on both sides of the pitch.
The ability to excel on offense or defense depending on your play style and squad is incredibly valuable. The midfielder’s pace, dribbling, and physicality are top tier while above-average passing stats are also a welcome sight.
Sanches is no slouch in front of goal either – 93 shot power and 84 long shots mean he can strike from distance. With Ligue 1 items running rampant this year, Sanches is an incredibly popular choice as a CDM, CM, or CAM.
2. Kevin De Bruyne
After much deliberation, De Bruyne slots in at the number 2 spot. His influence on the current state of FUT is going to be powerful. Without a doubt, Signature Signings De Bruyne is one of the best midfielders in the game.
Firstly, he’s quite easy to link with his ties to Manchester City. 5* weak foot is a wonderful trait for high-level players to have. This makes De Bruyne a dual-threat driving up the middle of the pitch. Just because De Bruyne’s passing is absurdly excellent, don’t think you won’t be taking your chances in front of goal. The midfielder is more than capable of netting his own goals thanks to amazing shooting stats.
De Bruyne is best utilized as a CAM or CM. Make sure to boost his pace with a chemistry style given that it is the only area that needs an increase. The Belgian is one of the smoothest midfielders in FUT at the moment.
1. Wissam Ben Yedder
Given how amazing De Bruyne’s item is, this may seem like a controversial decision. However, Ben Yedder has all of the qualities to effortlessly torment opposing defenders. One look at the card and it’s clear that Ben Yedder is going to be a nightmare in the Weekend League.
Signature Signings Ben Yedder has received one of the most significant upgrades in comparison to his base card. It’s always nice when a hefty price tag of around 860,000 is justified by a massive upgrade. Still, this item remains an unattainable luxury for most players. Those lucky enough to get their hands on him have a top-class striker at their disposal.
His links to Ligue 1 and his French nationality make him supremely easy to build a team around. The high/low work rate and 5* weak foot is the best possible combination for a striker. A striker’s three most important categories are dribbling, pace, and shooting. Suffice to say, Ben Yedder excels at all three.
Increasing pace and shooting with a hunter chemistry style is going to result in goal after goal for your team. Ben Yedder is an extremely meta option for high-level players and is the best card of the Signature Signings promo.
The positive reception of Ultimate Team’s Black Friday content has FIFA 22 players excited at what’s to come next. Hopefully, EA continues to deliver quality player items that are accessible through various means.

TOTY FIFA 22 Ultimate Team release date, full squad, & SBCs
As the year comes to a close, FUT players can’t wait to get their hands on the Team of the Year promo. Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 22 TOTY.
Ultimate Team’s TOTY promo is one of the most anticipated events of FIFA 22. The top footballers of the past year are honored as players vote for their favorite TOTY nominees in FIFA 22.
Team of the Year highlights the best Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders, and Attackers in an eleven-man squad. However, players can also expect 5-6 additional cards through the 12th Man, Objectives, and SBCs.
The competition was stiff this year as 2021’s top performers stepped up their game. Let’s take a look at the release date and the players included in the TOTY promo in addition to SBCs and Objectives FUT players will get a chance to complete.
- When is the FIFA 22 TOTY release date?
- What is Team of the Year?
- FIFA 22 TOTY full squad
- TOTY Objectives & SBCs
When is the FIFA 22 TOTY release date?
After the full squad was revealed on January 20, the TOTY will begin to appear in packs as of Friday, January 21, 2022. Forwards will appear in packs first on January 21, with midfielders and defenders set to follow in the subsequent days.
As is the norm with most promos players can expect to get their hands on these coveted cards at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET.
What is Team of the Year?
TOTY is a compilation of footballers who performed the best throughout 2021. Unlike Team of the Season which uses a club season as the criteria, this promo uses the calendar year to judge the top performers.
EA Sports typically chooses a squad of eleven players that fit into a 4-3-3 formation. Although, there is some flexibility when it comes to the way players fit into the formation. All players can expect a stat boost that will take their overall into the 90s.
Interestingly enough, this promo is decided by FUT players through a vote. You’ll get to decide which superstars are included in this year’s iteration of the Team of the Year. We’ll keep you posted when voting opens to FIFA 22 players.
FIFA 22 TOTY full squad
The criteria for selecting the TOTY is heavily influenced by trophy-winners. Most of the players on this list will have won a competition by the time 2021 comes to a close.
For example, Jorginho isn’t known as the flashiest footballer but his contribution to winning the Champions League with Chelsea and Euro 2020 makes him an undeniable representative.
The Attackers are led by Robert Lewandowksi who many believed should have won the 2021 Ballon d’Or thanks to his brilliant performances in the Champions League and Bundesliga. After winning Copa America last summer, Lionel Messi is once again involved in the squad.
As previously mentioned, Jorginho’s Euro and Champions League winning year see him make the TOTY. His Chelsea teammate N’Golo Kanté is right beside him in the midfield.
Check out the full squad below.
- 96- Donnarumma
- 94- Cancelo
- 95- Marquinhos
- 97- Ruben Dias
- 93- Hakimi
- 96- De Bruyne
- 97- Jorginho
- 96- Kanté
- 98- Messi
- 97- Mbappe
- 98- Lewandowski
TOTY Objectives & SBCs
As of now we currently have no indication of what to expect in terms of the players up for grabs through Objectives and SBCs during TOTY.
When EA Sports announces additional information concerning the official release date and SBCs we’ll update this section so be sure to check back in!
