According to The Teamthe unavailability of the midfielder, who left the field after an hour of play, Wednesday evening, during the semi-final return of the Champions League (2-1 victory for Real Madrid against Bayern Munich ), would be three to four weeks.

If this information were to be confirmed, it would mean that Tchouaméni, 24, would not necessarily be in a position to participate in the final of the European competition against Borussia Dortmund, on 1er June, at Wembley Stadium, London.

26 players, compared to 23 in the past

Another question: will Didier Deschamps call on him for Euro 2024? The coach of the French team, who must communicate his list on Thursday, May 16, to the 8 p.m. news on TF1, has a habit of not retaining players who are not able to participate in the first match of the Blues in competition . At the European Nations Championship, the entry into contention of Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann and their partners is scheduled for June 17 at 9 p.m. against Austria. This delay of more than a month works rather in favor of Tchouaméni in recovering his physical means.

Deschamps, like the coaches of the other teams qualified for Euro 2024, can also, this time, retain up to 26 players, compared to 23 in the past for major international competitions. “DD” could take advantage of this relaxation of the rules to integrate Tchouaméni “to see”, despite this “fatigue fracture”.

After his announcement on May 16, the boss of the French team can wait, in fact, until June 7 to communicate his final list to the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). This other element of the calendar pleads in favor of Tchouaméni, who is certainly one of the starters for the Blues in the mind of Didier Deschamps, thanks to his excellent service record.
