Mirotic to receive spanish nationality?

The race to claim Nikola Mirotic(2.06-F) has begun according to The spanish portal says that FEB(Federación Española de Baloncesto) want to claim that young montenegrian prospect as he has never played for the youth national team of Montenegro. Real Madrid, that owns the player's rights want him to receive spanish nationality as well so he doesn't occupy the position of an EU player.

On the other hand the Montenegro Federation and the players federation (Asociación de Baloncestistas Profesionales (ABP)) want the player to play for Montenegro. Mirotic is still developing and the comments about his skills make some people say he is the next Bodiroga and others say he is the next Nowitzki. So it is understandable as to why both sides try to claim him.

He says that he wants to play for Spain and what will happen is anyone's guess.
