The midfielder has seen his playing time increase this year and he has already made 10 league appearances – after making only 12 last season.
The Spaniard’s performances have not gone unnoticed with Arsenal and Bayern Munich both keeping tabs on his progress.
However now, according to Sport, Barcelona are ready to reward Roberto’s start to the season with a new contract.
The 23-year-old, who is seen as Barca’s long-term successor to Xavi, is keen to remain at the club and talks are expected to progress quickly.
Roberto’s current contract runs until 2019 and his new one is likely to see it extended by a year, with it also containing a release-clause of £30million.
