Barça's Neymar applies for Spanish passport

BARÇA FC forward Neymar wants to become Spanish, sources close to the player confirm.

The Brazilian-born 'golden boy', who was headhunted from his last team, Santos FC, in São Paulo State, wants to obtain double nationality.

He is eligible to keep his Brazilian passport as well as acquiring a Spanish one and a DNI card, the national identity document for citizens.

Neymar is about to reach his three years as a resident in Spain, the minimum requirement for a migrant from Brazil, and is in the middle of filling in forms and handing in the paperwork, one of his representatives, Wagner Ribeiro, is claimed to have said.

Latin Americans from Spanish-speaking countries, and Portuguese nationals, only need to wait two years.

All other nationalities, unless married to a Spaniard, used to have to be resident for 10 years, but can now apply for citizenship after five.
