The club have not revealed the time frame on his return but it seems that he could be out for months with knee ligament injuries taking quite some time to heal.
Camavinga has been part of the Real Madrid side this season as one of their crucial players this year. The Los Blancos have assembled a midfield for the future with Camavinga along with Uruguay’s Fede Valverde, French teammate Aurielien Tchouameni and the English star Jude Bellingham.

Camavinga already has a Champions League title to his name from the 2021-2022. He was also a big part of Carlo Anceoltti’s plans where he used the player at the left-back position when the original full-backs were out injured. He had thrived in the makeshift role but finds himself back competing for a spot in the midfield with the youngsters along with the likes of the experienced campaigners in Ballon D’Or winner Luka Modric, and the German Toni Kroos. The Frenchman currently sits with a tally of just one assist in the season which came in the Champions League when they went up against the Italian Champions Napoli in their group-stage fixture.
Real Madrid will hope for the quick recovery of the French midfielder as their charge for the La Liga title continues with the side now standing at second position with 32 points. Their arch-rivals Barcelona trail behind with two points while the unexpected league leaders, Girona sit at the top of the season with 34 points.
