Brazil international Vinicius Junior has acquired Spanish nationality, his club Real Madrid announced on Monday, allowing the club to register another non-EU player. “Our Brazilian player Vinicius Jr. took the oath of allegiance to the Spanish Constitution on Friday, 2 September, and therefore has Spanish nationality from that moment onwards,” Real Madrid said in a statement. Under Spanish Liga rules, there are limits to the number of non-EU players registered by a club. Vinicius, who is 22 years old, joined Real Madrid from Flamengo in 2018 and has become a key player. He finished last season’s Champions League final. He has 14 Brazil caps.
