HL Diego Carlos worth buying over NIF Varane?

Been using NIF Varane for ages now, and he's been great for me (surprise surprise, I know).

Now that HL Diego Carlos is getting his upgrade, would you say he's worth buying over Varane? Really I've been waiting for a better card than him to come out before I upgrade Varane as he's not that much better in terms of stats, but perhaps I should just buy him.

That being said, he doesn't have a single IF so far, and have read comments such as "How does he have a Headliner? he has been awful this season" etc. So if I were to buy him, I may have to accept the fact that he won't get any further upgrades after the 4 win one he's getting soon, and for 555k on PC I'm not sure if he's worth it.

    I couldn't get along with Varane. Tried him so many times but i keep selling him. I have untradeable HL Diego Carlos and he's so gooood.

    Carlos was better for me than nif varane before the upgrade, can't wait to see how they boost him during this next upgrade. A really good card

    I bought HL Diego as an upgrade for varane and investment.. guess what, he was not close to varane nif.. so I went back to him at 8chem he’s better..

    High & Stocky, thats the blueprint of a Tank-CB nobody will be able to pass 1on1 - and Diego Carlos has speed too. really happy to have him (untradeable from 80+ player picks, which were dope for me)

    Have you tried his 83 NIF ? You‘ll get a feeling of his bodytype and can decide if you like it.

    If you have to buy him, no. If you already have him, worth a try. I have both untradeable and my best cb duo is stones and hl carlos.

    Varane is good yes but I find myself using Carlos more and doing better with him. He's more agile, quicker and the solid trait does make a difference on him. Varane is big and strong with a bigger body frame but he just isn't as good for me.
