Giovani dos Santos' agent has confirmed he's opened new contract talks with Barcelona.

Pini Zahavi said: "We talked about Giovani, but there is nothing definite. We are only at half-season and we'll see what happens because it is true that anything can happen. I do not know if it is going to be a bit tricky."

Zahavi also denied reports that Dos Santos is contracted until 2012 at Barca, "No, that's not true. If he was on a long contract, I wouldn't be here."
