Vinicius Junior is now Spanish, in addition to being Brazilian. This Monday, Real Madrid announced in a press release published on its website that its winger was sworn in on the Spanish Constitution on Friday and now has dual nationality. In Spain, Ibero-American citizens (from countries in Central and South America where Spanish or Portuguese are the official language) can obtain citizenship after two years of residence. Which is largely the case for the former Flamengo since he joined Real in the summer of 2018.
Brazilian international since September 2019, the one who has 19 selections with the Auriverde will certainly not join La Roja but this naturalization is good news for the people of Madrid since it frees up a place from outside the community in their workforce.
