Barcelona are keen to secure Carles Aleña to a new deal.
Sport says he could see his terms extended before the current season is over. Talks have accelerated in recent weeks and everything is moving in the right direction for a long-term deal to be agreed.
Aleña has become one of the in-fashion players from the B team and has come on as a substitute in the last two games against Granada and Sevilla.
The midfielder's current deal expires to 2018.
