Atlético striker Sergio Agüero has finally been granted his Spanish passport, the club announced on its official site.

The 22-year old swore his oath of allegiance to the Spanish Constitution early Friday, putting an end to a long-awaited process that began in the summer of 2008.

Kun’s dual citizenship will free up one of the three non-European Union berths previously held by the native-born Argentine and team-mates Diego Godín and Diego Costa.

This news bodes well for the Rojiblanco idol’s prospects of displaying his dazzling skills at the Vicente Calderón for many years to come. The world class talent has played outstandingly since his return from a month long lay-off, having scored 10 goals in the last 10 games.

Though club officials recently indicated that no new signings would be made in the upcoming winter transfer window, this new opening of a non-EU spot broadens the market for a potential acquisition, and the directors may want to reconsider their plans.

Atleti fans will now be looking forward to an official announcent on Kun’s imminent contract extension signing.

    Total agreement with Derek Maaijen, let’s bring back Toto in January!

  • Ringo Schut

    He seems to play his games for Benfica, so I don’t know if they would let him… (if he wants to return already himself)
