How Vinicius Jr.’s Spanish citizenship benefits Real Madrid on the transfer market
A key member of Carlo Ancelotti’s team reportedly gave Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid a boost on the transfer front.
The participant in question? Jr. Vinicius
For those who are unaware, earlier today it was reported that wide receiver Vinicius had obtained a Spanish passport, making him a dual citizen of Spain and Brazil.
The 22-year-old also gave his team more wriggle room in the transfer market as a result of what he did.
According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid now have a second non-EU player in the team’s first-team lineup.
Given that Los Blancos’ pursuit of a key target this past June really failed due to a lack of further non-EU spaces in Ancelotti’s ranks, this may undoubtedly prove significant on the market either in January or next summer.
Gabriel Jesus had been considered as a perfect addition by the authorities at the Bernabeu after it became known that he was free to leave Manchester City.
But Real were finally forced to watch as Jesus signed a contract with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal after failing to advance in their efforts to sign the Brazilian.
