Except if he has another 60 point season, he will be looking at way bigger offers than 4 mill. He wants to stay, but I don't see him giving a discount in 2015 if he already did it in 2013 and 2014. Locking him up at 3,5-4M makes all the sense in the world.
What they could do is give him a two year at 3,5 and then start working on an extension after the first year if he keeps up what he did this year.
I still think a 4 year at 3,5 is the likely outcome ,
