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.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
