Which icon CB with a max of 900k?

Looking at either mid / prime blanc or prime Desailly. Any recommendations?

    Mid Blanc (better agility than Prime blanc + taller than Desailly) IMO

    Thanks all. I did see comments about mid Blanc's agility on futbin reviews. Like the fact Blanc is 6"4 as well! I'll go for him, thanks.

    I’ve replaced Ramos with PIM blanc and don’t regret it haven’t used 89 plans this year but he is always a rock

    89 blanc also looks like Hugh Laurie... I must have him.

    Thanks again gents.

    Check out Prime Hierro on Shadow. Nearly maxed all defensive stats. Decent physicality. Good composure and short AND long passing. Great balance for a 6'2" CB.

    I just used up the 10 games blanc loan and he was immense.

    You can do Optimus Blanc for 900K. Only toty Varane is better

    Best Rio you can. There is a reason the pros pick him over anyone.

    If you want to try something different then get any blanc. All are good

    Didn't realise Hierro was as tall as 6"2... I like Hierros traits (mainly the 'solid player' and power header).

    Actually leaning towards him now!

    If someone shows me a better icon CB under a mil I would actually considering changing out Hierro. I just havent seen any that are overall better imo. At least on paper

    Considering using prime Hierro then trying to get all 14 swap deals, get a free bass icon then chuck him into Blanc PIM (CNA then be done for 650k).

    I'll give Hierro a whirl.

    yeah for sure. I didn't know Hierro at all until I started looking for an Icon CB under a mil, like you are doing now. I compared Icon CBs pretty thoroughly and couldn't find one I liked better (combination of stats and size) than Prime Hierro. I think he's pretty underrated.
