Juanfran is hoping to be in a position to put pen to paper on a new contract at Levante in the not too distant future.
The veteran defender has been a key figure for the Primera Liga outfit this season and hopes his form will be rewarded with fresh terms.
The 35-year-old, who is back at the club where it all began for him, feels he is capable of playing on at the highest level and admits he would have no hesitation in agreeing an extension.
"I hope that they will give me another year," said Juanfran.
"I am 35 now and in July I will be 36, so I would say yes immediately.
"My aim is to stay here and we will see what both sides say, but it is normal that we want things tied up as quickly as possible."
Levante sit fifth in the Spanish top flight heading into Sunday's showdown with Atletico Madrid and Juanfran admits they have exceeded all expectations - having been tipped by many to struggle.
"We are having an incredible season and everyone is delighted because they deserve a year like this," he said.
"If we win against Atletico at the weekend then that would leave us six points above them.
"It is a key game in our season and we have to do something because we know that we still have some very difficult games to come."
