The KCM midfield
AS praised Kross-Casemiro-Modric midfield in their cover, calling them “Fireproof”, as the trio started 13 of the last 19 games and is resisting the reconstruction. Further, the club do not want to abandon this immutable medium, due to their artistic value.

Stats from the Atalanta game
Real Madrid’s performances have followed the same storyline: struggle against deep blocks while thriving against opponents who press them high. Against an Atalanta side reduced to ten men, these problems were on full display. #rmlive— Los Blancos Live (@LosBlancos_Live) February 25, 2021

Marca stated in the cover that Mbappé’s future is about to be decided. According to Josep Pedrerol from El Chiringuito, the player wants to sign for Real Madrid in the summer, but he’ll renew with PSG if the signing doesn’t happen. However, it’s complicated, because if Messi does not sign for PSG, the french club will ask 200 million of euros for Mbappé. In that case, Real Madrid will try to sign Haaland instead.
