FIFA to pay Real Madrid €1m in compensation due to Eduardo Camavinga’s injury on international duty
Eduardo Camavinga suffered a knee injury after colliding with Ousmane Dembele
Following a practice session with the French national team on Thursday, it became widely known that Eduardo Camavinga had damaged his knee tendons in an accident with erstwhile Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele. He will thus most likely be sidelined until 2024, which will be devastating for Real Madrid.
Camavinga, his countryman’s immediate successor in the midfield defence spot under Carlo Ancelotti’s 4-4-2 style, is now unavailable for Los Blancos after losing Aurelien Tchouameni for the remainder of the season due to a foot injury.
The bright side for Real Madrid is that, because Camavinga’s injury occurred while serving for his country, FIFA would reimburse them for their losses. According to Marca, they will be paid €20,548 every day, or €1,232,880 in total, if the 21-year-old remains absent for the anticipated two months.

But Real Madrid would prefer to have Camavinga available to them for the next eight weeks, so this is scarcely solace. They are severely lacking options in defensive midfield for the future as a result of his injury.
Given how excellent Camavinga has looked each time he has played this campaign, it is a huge blow for Real Madrid.
Cama is scheduled to travel to Madrid later this month for more testing on his knee, but early reports from reliable sources indicate that he won’t play for Los Blancos in 2023.
Camavinga’s comeback to duty is improbable if he misses the allotted eight weeks, but it is possible at his earliest opportunity in late December.
After suffering an injury in El Clasico, Aurelien Tchouameni is still recovering for Real Madrid.
