Olympic Games: Real Madrid sent a letter to the FFF


By: Manu Tournoux

At the end of March, the French team will be back on deck to play two preparation matches, against Germany on March 23 in Lyon then against Chile three days later in Marseille, with a view to Euro 2024 which will have place across the Rhine this summer. However, the 2024 Olympic Games are already on everyone’s minds. Thus, several players who are members of Team A have clearly expressed their intention to participate in the sporting event. This is the case of Eduardo Camavinga. At the age of 21, the Madrilenian has positioned himself as a legitimate candidate for selection without being used as a joker. Same story with regard to his compatriot, Kylian Mbappé.

Since his arrival at Paris Saint-Germain, the Bondynois has continued to loudly proclaim his ambition to participate in this meeting which counts enormously in the career of a great sportsman. But in recent hours, the idea of ​​seeing the Parisian star wearing the tricolor tunic has taken a backseat. Although his future is still not sealed despite the announcement of his departure from the capital club at the end of the season, KM7 has a good chance of joining Real Madrid during the next summer transfer window. But while French clubs could look favorably on letting their players compete in this competition, foreign clubs do not view it in the same way.

Real Madrid refuses to release its French!

Inflexible on this subject, Real Madrid took matters into their own hands this Thursday. As informs The Team, the current leader of La Liga will not let his players leave and has clearly notified the French Football Federation. Using its rights, Casa Blanca, which extends this decision to its entire workforce, is not forced to release its internationals for this period which is not included in the FIFA calendar. At a time when a summer tour on the East Coast of the United States at the end of July is being considered, Real Madrid is counting on the presence of its best in order to best prepare for the 2024-2025 edition. In other words, the probability of seeing players such as Eduardo Camavinga, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Ferland Mendy or even Kylian Mbappé, expected to join Castile, seems reduced to nothing.

Eager to put together the best possible team so as not to repeat the Tokyo fiasco, Thierry Henry risks reviewing his plans. Obviously, the coach of the France U23 team had already been particularly pessimistic about the participation of Mbappé and others. “It’s not about disappointment. I can understand everything. You have to assimilate one thing. The decision comes from the club, whatever happens. I’m not saying it’s going to be the same for everyone. When you arrive, you don’t have a card in your hand. These are not FIFA dates. Teams need their players at the start of the season. The teams abroad don’t think about the Olympics and neither about us but about them. It’s in the hands of the clubs. We try to discuss, to see what can happen but if the club remains with its decision, it is difficult for us to do something.he expressed on the microphone of The Team when announcing his list this Thursday.
