Barcelona have opened new contract talks with Gerard Deulofeu.

The teenage winger is inside the final 18 months of his current deal and is a target for Manchester City and Chelsea.

City chief Txiki Begiristain was in Barcelona a fortnight ago, fueling talk of an approach to Deulofeu's camp.

Sport says Barca have now opened talks about a new deal with the youngster, well aware of the growing interest from England in their starlet.
