FIFA 18: Manchester United just revealed a new kit… but it only exists in FIFA

It's the fourth Red Devils' kit - but won't actually be worn by real players

Manchester United have released a new kit – but it won’t actually be worn by anyone in real life.

That’s because the strip is exclusive to FIFA 18 – a shame, given just how pretty it is.

The new kit looks seriously aggressive – with flecks of red scattered over a black background.

The kit will only be available through Ultimate Team and will be granted to players who selected United as their favourite team on their active profile before December 15.

For everybody else, it’ll be available in packs and on the transfer market.

The Red Devils are the first UK club to do such a move, paving the way for other British clubs to follow suit.

Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid also revealed exclusive digital kits – all opting for a black background.

In other news, FUTMas kicked off last week, and saw EA Sports begin to flood the market with lightning rounds, new pack offers and SBCs.

FUTMas is due to run until January 2nd, 2018 – with the best offers arriving on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

What is going to be included in FUTMas this year?

Here’s a detailed breakdown of the likely offers and rewards you’ll see this year:

What kind of players should I invest in?

According to FourFourTwo, you should keep your eyes on 83-84-rated gold players, so you can tackle as many SBCs as possible.

Make sure to spread your coins across the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and the Ligue 1 to try to meet the high chemistry requirements.

The idea here is that you pick up as many as possible.

They usually sit between 2,000-4,000 coins, prices that will likely  drop even more during FUTMas.

What will be the daily reward? And tell us more about the SBCs.

We’d expect the daily rewards to be special SBC players.

In Forms were required for many of the FUTMas SBCs last year – which will likely result in a price increase as gamers try to snap up as many as possible.

Although tempting, hang on to your IFs and don’t flog them – you’ll find yourself missing out.

Last year’s SBCs had a 24 hour expiry date – so the window will be small.

You can your hands on the new Fifa for free, honestly!

Cristiano Ronaldo will be on most people’s wish lists

What about Ultimate Scream?

Make sure to hang on to these – it’s likely they’ll be needed in some SBCs (Same with Movember cards).

If you don’t have any, most will do, but prioritise 83+ rated Scream cards.

Should I invest in the best players?

If you have the money, definitely.

FourFourTwo pick out Franck Ribery, Thiago Alcantara, Mesut Ozil and Samir Handanovic – all of whom can be snapped up for around 18-45k.

When an SBC requires a high-rated squad, these players will go up in value for the duration of the challenge – so can be a quick way of turning over a decent profit.

Good luck!
