What was originally intended to be a stopgap solution during the World Cup has become something much more permanent. Camavinga’s performances at left-back were so good that Didier Deschamps’ idea, which seemed so far-fetched at the time, was picked up by Carlo Ancelotti.
Whether in the Champions League, against opponents like Chelsea or Man City, or in the league against Barcelona, the Frenchman has proven to be a decisive player, despite a few mistakes. His performances even drew praise from Luka Modric.
However, it’s no secret that the former Rennais is much less happy in defense than in midfield. Deschamps himself recalled it recently. Camavinga also wasn’t shy about expressing his dissatisfaction with his position.
Now, according to ‘El Confidencial’, Camavinga has pressured the top brass to return him to midfield. According to the Spanish outlet, the 20-year-old is believed to be adamant about returning to his favorite spot as soon as possible.
Aware of the problem, Madrid are looking for a solution, and several left-backs are under consideration, such as Fran Garcia. As for Camavinga himself, he certainly cannot be thrilled with the arrival of Jude Bellingham, which would certainly see him ruled out of midfield for several seasons.
