Most football clubs around the world shuffle their chief sponsor fairly regularly, chasing after the most economically lucrative offer. However, Real Madrid are one of the few clubs to have persisted with their sponsor for close to a decade.

Fly Emirates’ deal with Los Blancos dates back close to a decade and in 2017, the two parties announced an extension of their part year for a further five years. The deal is set to expire in the coming summer, and no talks over another extension were reported so far.

According to reports from Lucasz Baczek, Real Madrid have agreed on a renewal with Fly Emirates for another three years. The deal will run until the 2025-26 season and will see the club receive €70 million per year. 

Under the agreement, the club may receive additional bonuses of close to €7 million for successes on the pitch.

The Emirates logo has been front and centre of Real Madrid’s jersey from the 2013-14 season when the airlines paid €27 million plus bonuses. Close to ten years later, that figure has tripled and is now the largest shirt sponsorship in Europe.

An official announcement regarding the same can be expected in the coming days once the papers are signed. Nevertheless, the renewal comes as great news for Los Blancos’ faithful for the airline logo has arguably become a homely part of the team’s jersey over the years.

Real Madrid will return to action after the international break when they take on Osasuna at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Marco Asensio is among the players who are facing an uncertain future at Real Madrid as we approach the second half of the campaign.

The attacker’s current deal at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season. And despite showing glimpses of his potential during the course of this campaign, his continuity in the Spanish capital is far from guaranteed.

According to Fichajes, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has urged the club to push for an operation to sign Asensio at the end of the season.

The Spanish tactician has identified Asensio as an ideal candidate to reinforce his ranks in the attacking unit. The Real Madrid star, after all, brings in a wealth of experience, having featured in over 260 competitive matches for Los Blancos.

The forward’s tally of 53 goals and 29 assists is not bad by any means either. And given his versatility in the final third of the pitch, he could be a useful addition for Arsenal in the coming season.

But the Real Madrid camp will not too keen on offloading their star player. The club have been impressed by the attacker’s performance, which could potentially lead to a renewal offer later this year.

However, it must be noted that Real Madrid are yet to table any official offer for the attacker. In fact, it is Arsenal who have started laying the groundwork and are expected to meet the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, in London to discuss a potential move to Emirates Stadium.

It appears Liverpool are in the mix as well, though Arsenal remain the favourite due to the presence of Mikel Arteta. Barcelona, too, had showcased interest in signing Asensio in the summer, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Spaniard in the coming months.
