Fifa 11 Ultimate Team: The best bargain signings for the PS3 version (with auction photos)

Updated on December 7, 2010

If you're anything like me then you will currently be engrossed in Fifa 11 Ultimate team. It's quite simply the most addictive game i've played for years and is sometimes impossible to drag yourself away from (i'm having withdrawal symptoms as a type this) You can even trade on your laptop now with EA's new Web App so it eats up even more of my life than it did before.

In the week that it's been out i've been wheeling, dealing and learning as much as i can. In this hub i'm going to share with you the best bargain players that i have come across so far on the PS3 version.

Over a period of 7 hours i merely observed and studied the UT market without buying or selling (sad i know). This was to try to find who the best players are to buy for cheap and sell for a profit. I have included photos which although aren't of the best quality as they were taken with my phone prove that these players can earn you plenty of coins if you're patient.

So here goes. These were my findings in the hunt for a bargain.


Nani: (Portugal) LW - Man Utd

I found that you can normally pick Nani up for 16,000/17,000 coins and get around 22,000 when selling him. A nice cool profit of 5/6,000 coins if you have the money to buy him or get him in a pack like i did the other day.

Sold for 16,050
Sold for 16,050
Sold for 22,650
Sold for 22,650

Pepe: (Italy) RM - Juventus

Some of the players on the list don't make as much as others but if you have 3 or 4 of them then it all starts to add up. Pepe is one of these players. He can be picked for 400/500 coins and be sold for 1000/1200.

Sold for 450
Sold for 450
Sold for 1200
Sold for 1200

Stilian Petrov: (Bulgaria) CM - Aston Villa

Petrov is one player i've made quite a few coins from. At one point i had 7 up for grabs on the trade pile. If you can get him for anything below 700 then he's worth it as he can normally fetch 1200 from buy now.

Sold for 500
Sold for 500
Sold for 1150
Sold for 1150

Diego: (Brazil) CAM - VFL Wolfsburg

I was lucky enough to get Diego in a premium gold pack and he sold for 9,500 coins. As these photos show he can be picked up for around 5000 on occasions so if you get the chance then snap him up at that price.

Sold for 5200
Sold for 5200
Sold for 10,000
Sold for 10,000

Danny: (Portugal) CAM - Zenit St Petersburg

Danny is a strange one. He's got an overall of 82 and great stats but he can be picked up for anything between 2000 and 8000 coins. There is definitely a profit to be made if you get him at the right price. I sold him for 4,500 but i wish i'd have hung on for more.

Sold for 2000
Sold for 2000
Sold for 8050
Sold for 8050

Jenas: (England) CM - Tottenham Hotspur

Jenas is one that you have to be patient with when you have him. You can quite easily pick him up for under 500 coins and i have been getting 1000 from buy now when selling him back on. He doesn't always sell first time but he does sell given time.

Sold for 350
Sold for 350
Sold for 1000
Sold for 1000

Martin Petrov: (Bulgaria) LM - Bolton

The other Petrov has also been making me a steady income of coins over the last few days. I tend to buy a few of this card and make between 200 and 400 profit on each one. Easy money.

Sold for 400
Sold for 400
Sold for 900
Sold for 900

Diawara: (Senegal) CB - OM (Marseille)

Can be picked up for anything between 500/600 and 2000. Very erratic in how much he goes for. Worth bidding for if he's cheap.

Sold for 600
Sold for 600
Sold for 1800
Sold for 1800

Gourcuff: (France) CAM - OL (Lyon)

If you can get Gourcuff for under 10,000 then you're onto a winner. Can be sold for between 14,000 and 16,000 usually.

Sold for 9150
Sold for 9150
Sold for 14,500
Sold for 14,500

Sturridge: (England) ST - Chelsea

Another one that i have been doing quite well out of. Sometimes he's available for 500 and other times people are fighting it out to get him for 2000.

Sold for 500
Sold for 500
Sold for 2000
Sold for 2000

Juan: (Brazil) CB - Roma

Last but not least is Roma's Juan. Buy for a couple of thousand and sell on for 2000/3000 profit. Job's a good un.

Sold for 2200
Sold for 2200
Sold for 5950
Sold for 5950

So that's 11 players that i followed through a 7 hour period and they were the results. There are so many bargains to be had out there if you look for them.

If you can get Arshavin for under 30,000 coins then you have got a good deal, or Izmailov (Sporting) for around 400 you can normally sell him on for 1000 just as you can with Derbyshire (Birmingham). I personally think the key to whole thing is patience. If your player doesn't go the first time then don't panic and start dropping the price. Just because he doesn't go in that auction doesn't mean he won't the next time you put him up. For example one day i couldn't sell Petrov (Aston Villa) quick enough for 1200 coins (I think i shifted 5 at that price) but the next day people weren't even willing to bid the initial 900 coins that he was up for.

Other players who are worth buying to bulk up your squad are players like Niang (Fenerbahce) who's a brilliant all round striker and can be bought for 2500 coins quite often. Another great all round striker is Kenwyne Jones (Stoke) and can always be bought for 2000 or lower. Great in the air and fast. Mikel from Chelsea is another bargain for between 2500 and 3000 on most occasions, or Hleb (Birmingham) for a similar price or even Etherington (Stoke) for around 700 coins. One that always baffles me is why people pay more for someone like Bojan (Barcelona) when there is just as good in his position who are often cheaper like Jovetic (Fiorentina) and Nihat (Besiktas)

Remember that The Ultimate team market is an ever changing place so the prices i have put in this hub are never a guaranteed thing. Just to clarify again, the photo's in this hub are not players that i have bought and sold. They are just auctions that i have followed throughout the day.

Thanks for reading my hub. I hope that you found it useful. If you want a great read and some brilliant tips on Ultimate team then Warchild75s hubs are superb. Here's his latest on Fifa 11 Ultimate team
