Atletico Madrid open new contract talks with Maxi

Atletico Madrid are keen to open new contract talks with club captain Maxi Rodriguez.

Only last season Atletico extended Maxi's deal to 2010 and also raised his buyout clause to £40 million. But such is his form this season - and his influence on youngsters such as Sergio Aguero - Atletico are keen to secure him to a new deal.

Maxi's representatives, IMG, have already been contacted by Atletico about beginning talks for a new agreement.
