The World Cup winner has made 161 appearances for Madrid, but after an injury-hit season it is looking likely that he will be plying his trade somewhere else next campaign, as a new offer is not set to be put on the table.
The 28-year-old German star is hitting the peak of his career and his next club could be decided sooner rather than later.
