Barcelona have opened talks over the renewal of Giovani dos Santos' contract .

DiarioSport says the Mexican's new agent, Pini Zahavi, met yesterday with Barca sports director Txiki Begiristain about an improvement on the youngster's current deal.

Dos Santos is contracted to Barca until 2012, but is still on modest wages for a first team squad member. Talks between Zahavi and Begiristain will continue this week.
