FIFA 23 fans would have to spend over 106,000 FUT coins to get all the essential players from the Transfer Market for completing this SBC. It is possibly one of the most pocket-friendly Icon SBCs that has been added to Ultimate Team lately. The reason for this estimated budget could be the less demanding requirements of the challenge.

But there are always players for whom this SBC’s estimated budget could be huge. So they can always save up some coins and complete the challenge by using the cards from their own inventory. If players are low on coins and cards, they can play some FUT matches to get their hands on more for the SBC.

Should FIFA 23 fans acquire the Xavi Hernandez Prime Icon card?

The 93-rated Xavi Hernandez Prime Icon card at an expenditure of nearly 106,000 FUT coins is an absolute deal. This card has 95 Passing and 93 Dribbling stats, making it the perfect fit for building a strong FUT squad. So fans should get this card as soon as possible before EA Sports removes it from the game.
