ONE of Real Madrid’s best players received his Spanish passport, one day after the closure of the transfer market.

Vinícius Junior, Real Madrid’s Brazilian forward, received his Spanish passport, one day after the transfer market closed in Spain, according to reports on Monday, September 5.

The club wrote: “Real Madrid CF announces that our Brazilian player Vinicius Junior swore an oath of allegiance to the Spanish Constitution on Friday 2 September thereby, acquiring Spanish nationality from that moment onwards.”

As noted by football transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, this is significant news for the Spanish giants as they now have one non-EU spot free on the market.

Romano noted that a deal for then-Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus collapsed in June because of that issue.

Jesus later joined early Premier League leaders Arsenal, who lost to Manchester United on Sunday, September 4.

People on social media reacted to the news.

One person wrote on Twitter: “What a coincidence that apart from the fact that it took so long, this happened after the closing of the transfer market and not before. In short, they are still good news that in the future it can come in handy when planning the workforce. Let’s go!”

Another wrote: “Nationality a few days after closing the market… They will think we are fools..”

Another person said: “When the market has closed. Thanks anyway… that country against Real Madrid is a joke.”

“Free passage for Bellingham…and Endrick. Two Real Madrid targets for 2023 and 2024. Rodrygo and Militao are on track for dual nationality in the coming months,” another person wrote.
