Real Madrid’s star player suffers injury while on national team duty

Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga Suffers Knee Injury – Reports

Real Madrid are facing concerns after reports of midfielder Eduardo Camavinga sustaining a knee injury. According to journalist Loic Tanzi (via Madrid Xtra), the injury occurred during the player’s training with the French national squad, following a collision with teammate Ousmane Dembele. As a result, Camavinga had to end his training session prematurely.

As France prepares for their UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers against Gibraltar and Greece during the international break, Camavinga’s availability is now uncertain. His absence could be worrying for Real Madrid, considering the crucial role he plays under manager Carlo Ancelotti, especially in the absence of Aurelien Tchouameni.

Camavinga has been a key defensive midfielder for Real Madrid, featuring in all 17 fixtures across different competitions this season and even signing a contract extension with the club until 2029.

In another report, Real Madrid has reportedly expressed interest in recruiting Athletic Club talent Nico Williams as his contract approaches expiration. Rival interest from English clubs such as Manchester City, Newcastle United, and Aston Villa as well as a preference to continue his career in Spain could make the pursuit challenging.

However, Williams’ reported preference for Real Madrid could be a significant factor, although he is adamant about renewing his contract with Athletic Club before any potential departure. Interested parties would need to engage in transfer negotiations with Athletic Club to secure his services.

Ultimately, both developments could significantly impact Real Madrid’s dynamics, with Camavinga potentially out of action while the club aims to secure the services of Nico Williams.
