The La Liga regulations suggest that each team can sign up to five non-EU players in a season. However, a team is allowed to field a maximum of three players on the pitch.

The La Liga clubs can add more foreign or non-EU players if the players have EU ancestors or relatives, as these players can be eligible to serve as EU players.  


Also, ACP (African, Caribbean and Pacific Group) nations footballers are not considered the non-EU players due to the Kolpak ruling for signing the Cotonou Agreement.

Real Madrid’s present status

Real Madrid already have five non-EU players in the squad. Apart from the important names like Eder Militao, Vinicius Junior, and Rodrygo, two currently loaned youngsters Takefusa Kubo and Reinier are too non-EU players whose present loan tenure will be completed by the end of this month.

The foreign players can achieve the Spanish passports after spending four years in Spain. Though Vinicius arrived in Real Madrid in July 2018, the COVID-19 pandemic forced him to wait a longer period to become eligible for a Spanish passport. According to some media reports, the Brazilian can be eligible for a Spanish passport in January 2023.

So, Los Blancos are currently in an uncomfortable situation to sign any other non-EU players for the new season. To sign any other non-EU players, the club must either release or send on loan their other non-EU players.

So, in the present transfer window, the Whites will mostly have to focus on the EU players to avoid any critical situations.   

Los Blancos are currently battling in the summer transfer window as they have some major targets to add top young forwards to the squad ahead of the new season.
