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.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
