Real Madrid sports chief Pedja Mijatovic has hinted they could be ready to soon discuss a new contract extension with captain Raul.
The striker has been in sensational form under new coach Bernd Schuster and Mijatovic said: "A new contract? Why not?
"At the end of this season we will consider the form of each player and make decisions based on that. Raul will have his contract renewed if his good form continues. But there's plenty of time as he is contracted until 2010."
