FIFA 14's Ultimate Team Legends are available to Xbox One and Xbox 360 users, and with Microsoft's new console now launched across the globe, it's time to take into consideration which oldies are worth special attention.

Be sure to note most of these players are likely to be valued at an immense fee. If you've got a few million spare or possess extreme luck in the pack-opening business, one of these special items may arrive in your lap before long.

Let's take a look at the Legends who deserve your utmost attention right now, avoiding the obvious lure of Pele. All statistics are provided by the lovely folks at FUThead.


FIFA 14 Legends Who Deserve Your Attention

Ruud Gullit, 90

It's not an understatement to suggest Ruud Gullit could be the best all-round item EA has ever produced on Ultimate Team.

The Dutch destroyer deserves to be feared. Not only does he possesses ridiculous passing, shooting and dribbling abilities, Gullit is a physical specimen who isn't going to back out of a battle.

Let's not forget the player's outrageous free-kick statistics either. With free-kick accuracy at 98 and a curve at 96, the former Milan player can easily produce enough power and whip to beat any goalkeeper on the game.

If you're yet to be convinced, Gullit's iconic hair is more than worthy of a place in any team.

Luis Figo, 90

Remember a time before Cristiano Ronaldo was tearing through every team put in front of him? Luis Figo was Portugal's top winger a decade ago, something that shows when you consider the versatility of his Ultimate Team item.

With ball control rated 93 and dribbling at 94, the ball sticks to Figo's feet much like his younger counterpart. He is an all-round player whose smart positioning and intelligence make up for a lack of strength.

Expect the former Real Madrid player to drift inside to receive possession or hug the line on a counter-attack, providing the team with extra width. When the running is done, his 90-rated long shots are devastating enough to easily beat any keeper.

Dennis Bergkamp, 90

FIFA 14 is a technical game, far more so than its predecessor. With that in mind, it's player like Dennis Bergkamp who can make a real difference.

The Dutchman flaunts amazing ball control at 91. This combines nicely with his 97-rated finishing and is complimented by immense shot power.

Bergkamp's ability to hold up the ball and play facing away from goal is particularly useful when wingers are used, throwing up the possibility of playing himself alongside current Arsenal stars such as Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
