Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga Suffers Knee Injury on International Duty
In a potentially troubling development for Real Madrid, midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has reportedly picked up a knee injury. According to journalist Loic Tanzi, this unfortunate incident transpired during training with the French national squad, where he collided with Ousmane Dembele. France is gearing up for their UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers, and Camavinga’s availability for those matches is now uncertain.
Real Madrid will have cause for concern, given Camavinga’s pivotal role in their squad under manager Carlo Ancelotti. The midfielder’s significance has been magnified in the absence of Aurelien Tchouameni, who is expected to be out till mid-December. Camavinga has been the preferred defensive midfielder for Los Blancos in his compatriot’s absence.
Despite his injury, Camavinga has featured in every one of Real Madrid’s 17 fixtures this season, contributing an assist. His contract with the club has been extended until 2029, highlighting his influence and importance to the team.
In a separate report, Real Madrid is reportedly interested in Athletic Club talent Nico Williams. With his contract expiring in June, Williams has become a sought-after entity, attracting attention from both Spanish and English clubs. While there is international appeal for Williams, the forward reportedly leans towards continuing his career in Spain, with a preference for Real Madrid over Barcelona if given the choice.
However, Williams is insistent on renewing his contract with Athletic Club before any potential departure, meaning interested parties would need to engage in formal transfer negotiations with the Basque club to secure his services.
