Icon RTG - who to go for?

After rewards I'll be sitting on about 1.5M, which Icon should I build around? Plan is to slowly upgrade the squad with rewards.

Possible options:

- 88 Best (eventually upgrade to prime best)
- Middle version of Socrates
- 87 ADP
- Middle Bergkamp
- 89 Cruyff (although I'll have to save up)
- Prime Figo
- Prime Raul
- Middle/Prime Seedorf

Any other suggestions are welcome

    Cruyff, some great Dutch cards this year

    Or best, he's amazing

    Def go Cruyff then. That partnership should be a lot of fun. I actually bought prime cruyff yesterday to be behind Ibra but he sold for profit by the time I got home from work

    I can’t reccommend prime Raul enough.

    I was pleasantly surprised by him, the first few games he felt like he wasn’t doing a lot but was still 5 in 5, then all of a sudden he started killing it and hasn’t stopped. He’s surprisingly agile for a bigger striker and can score with both feet or in the air.

    Prime best is probably more fun, but Raul is an out and out striker and deadly from corners as well.

    I was thinking of doing this as well , Gullit as my star player like Fatal . Full silver & upgrade the team after every WL result . Game is boring for me RN

    I believe you should pick someone who will contribute up top for the team so I would go for one of the new icons like Raul / Cruyff or Socrates

    I would take this recommendation with a grain of salt. Raul is a crazy good striker but his pace is somewhat underwhelming.

    As a United fan and someone who loved Best in previous FIFAs I'm leaning towards him.

    Cruyff was one of the icons I wanted to try most but his 89 seems a bit overpriced tbh... his stats don't look that much better than 88 best who is about 1M cheaper.

    Also, is Socrates' balance an issue?

    Thanks for the suggestions :)

    Isn't he supposed to be really average? Was looking forward to using him
