After some concerning news for Real Madrid arrived from France just over an hour ago, it has thankfully been followed with a rather positive update about Eduardo Camavinga.
In what may have been another worrying addition to their injury list, the young midfielder was deemed to have picked up an injury in training while on international duty with Les Bleus.
Camavinga seemingly had a coming-together with Ousmane Dembele and went down holding his knee in pain, and after some examination from the physios, left the training session.
A key player for Real Madrid and France, a serious injury would mean a huge miss for both sides and would cause special concern for Madrid given the constant injuries that have constantly befallen them.
However, the ever-reliable Fabrizio Romano has just issued an update about the youngster, saying that initial signs point towards Camavinga’s injury not being too concerning.
He will train as normal tomorrow
Romano says that there is a lot of optimism for France and Real Madrid that the injury is not serious and regular service can resume soon.
There will be tests conducted on the player tomorrow just to ensure there is nothing to worry about, but both camps can seemingly breathe a slight sigh of relief on hearing the news.
The Frenchman has already established himself as a key member of the Galacticos squad, starting 13 of their 17 games across all competitions this season and regularly impressing with his impressive technical ability and versatility.
More updates may follow tomorrow if the scans are conducted, but according to another update from journalist Jose Luis Sanchez, Camavinga has nothing but a bruise on the knee and will return to France training as normal tomorrow.
Worth keeping an eye out on news from the France training session tomorrow…
Real Madrid summer signing set to return to training soon – report
Real Madrid’s main goal heading into the summer transfer window was to wrap up the signing of Jude Bellingham amid massive interest from Premier League giants such as Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea.
Pep Guardiola’s City, especially, were ready to match and increase any salary Madrid offered, and were going strongly into the bidding war.
Eventually, Bellingham decided to join Madrid after they reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for €3 million.
However, following this, los blancos had to improvise a fair bit as Karim Benzema decided to leave the club to join Al-Ittihad on a free transfer. They were expecting him to continue for another season, at least, and it stumped their plans in the market.
In the next few weeks, Madrid chased forwards, and ended up signing Joselu, Brahim Diaz, and a certain Arda Guler, who was close to Barcelona before eventually ending up at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Unfortunately for Madrid, he is yet to play a single minute for the club after picking up a serious injury in pre-season. Despite being on the bench for a couple of games, Guler suffered a relapse in training, and was sidelined again.
Now, reports from Yagiz Sabuncuoglu say that the Turkish international is close to returning to team training.
Guler has slowly, but surely, been recovering from his injury, and could take to the pitch for his first minutes with the club in the next few weeks as Madrid look for solutions after a month full of injuries.
With Vinicius Jr, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eder Militao, and Thibaut Courtois all out until early 2024, Madrid have relied on Castilla for reinforcements, but could do with Guler’s services in their forward line.
That said, Carlo Ancelotti and co. are expected to be extremely cautious when it comes to the Turkish international. The slightest spell of poor man-management here could make or break the youngster’s career.
