Real Madrid’s Brazilian pair Rodrygo, Militao granted Spanish citizenships

Real Madrid's Brazilian duo Rodrygo Goes and Eder Militao acquired Spanish nationalities on Friday as the Whites vacated non-EU spots in the squad.

Rodrygo and Militao swore an oath each to be dual citizens after another Brazilian player Vinicius Junior did the same in September.

So Real Madrid's three Brazilians are now Spanish.

According to the Spanish La Liga regulations, the clubs can have up to three non-EU players, who are seen as foreigners, on the pitch.

Federico Valverde, a Real Madrid midfielder from Uruguay, was also granted the Spanish nationality earlier.

Real Madrid can now sign other non-EU players during the mid-season transfer market in January 2023.
