Camavinga to have MRI scan at Madrid's training ground after leaving France camp

Real Madrid's injury list has grown longer with the news that Eduardo Camavinga suffered a knee injury while training with France on Wednesday.

The midfielder suffered a clash of knees with former Barcelona winger, Ousmane Dembele, who is now at Paris Saint Germain, and needed treatment before being helped off the training ground.

Although early indications were that Camavinga had just suffered a knock, a second examination showed that he has twisted his right knee and the player was allowed to leave the French training ground to return to Madrid.

The 21-year-old will have further tests back in Spain, but early indications are that he will be out of action for around six weeks.

Camavinga, who last week extended his contract with Real Madrid until 2029, joins goalkeepers, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Thibaut Courtois on the injury list and will be an important loss to Carlo Ancelotti.

Camavinga's loss further reduced Ancelotti's options to rotate in midfield to rest players, such as Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, while he has also provided cover at left back.
