Real Madrid are in a tricky spot with their forward line at the moment. Having lost four players in recent weeks, they are in throwing the kitchen sink to rejuvenate the department.

Yet, their situation in midfield is the polar opposite. Carlo Ancelotti has a gold mine of talent competing for just three starting spots heading into the new season, and the next burning topic thus appears to be how the manager will accommodate so many stars.

According to reports from Jose Felix Diaz via Blanca Remontada, Eduardo Camavinga is seen as worthy of a regular starting spot next season. The youngster enjoyed an imperious 2022/23 campaign, and is set to reap the rewards of the same.

The past year has seen the Frenchman turn around his situation in grand style. From a position of relative anonymity, Camavinga has made himself a household name and will only go to greater strengths next season.

The 20-year-old made 37 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid in 2022-23, providing one assist and creating two big chances in the process. Yet, one much remember that most of his season elapsed as a backup left-back in place of Ferland Mendy.

Having proven his worth both as an interior midfielder and a pivot in recent times, it remains to be seen which position Ancelotti considers him a regular at. The pivot, it would appear, is more likely.

The spotlight now falls on the Real Madrid manager. With Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Aurelien Tchouameni, Federico Valverde, and Jude Bellingham all fighting for just two spots, there will likely be some unhappy faces at the Bernabeu next term.

Having signed Bellingham for a mammoth fee, it is only natural that the manager gives him regular minutes from the get-go. That considered, it appears likely that Modric and Kroos will play subdued roles in the 2023/24 campaign.

France set for major boost as Real Madrid midfielder closes in on a return

After a long wait, the European Championship is finally underway, with one of the tournament’s favourites Germany opening the competition with an emphatic 5-1 win over Scotland.

Another favourite to win the Euro 2024 is France, who will be in action on Monday as they take on Austria. One of the talking points heading into this game is the fitness of Real Madrid superstar, Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman had picked up an injury late into the 2023/24 campaign, which notably saw him miss the UEFA Champions League final. It was thought that the midfielder would miss a chunk of the Euros as well.

Tchouameni available for France’s group stage games

However, it appears Tchouameni has made a remarkable recovery and could be in contention to feature in France’s group-stage matches.

That is according to AS, which suggests that coach Didier Deschamps is counting on the midfielder to become available sooner rather than later.

Although Tchouameni has been ruled out for France’s opening game against Austria, the player is hoping to feature in the two remaining group matches against Poland and the Netherlands.

Up until this point, Tchouameni completed individual training sessions with France’s physical trainer. But recently, he was able to join the team’s training session ahead of the Austria game.

Tchouameni’s return could serve as a massive boost for France. Even though Les Bleus already have a stacked midfield unit, coach Deschamps is a huge admirer of Tchouameni and had backed him to get fit the moment he picked up an injury.

Deschamps, after all, did not opt to replace the Real Madrid star with another player.

France, of course, will have to proceed with caution, knowing the youngster has just recovered from his injury. But they can be hopeful of the player taking part as the tournament progresses.
