The Croatian midfield maestro is into the final six months of his contract at the Spanish giants and a report from October in Marca outlined how his level of performance is persuading the club to offer him a new deal.

Indeed, that included a poll for Madridistas asking whether the experienced midfielder should have his deal renewed at the club, with 91 percent of the 25,000 respondents believing he should be offered an extension.
