Barcelona have been handed a boost with the news that attacking winger Isaac Cuenca has been given the medical all-clear to return to playing.
The 21-year-old made 16 League appearances for La Blaugrana last term in a breakthrough season, but has been unavailable for selection since May.
Cuenca underwent a corrective surgical procedure on a knee injury and whilst he returned to training in late November, he is only now available for selection.
That is after club officials assessed the condition of his knee and gave him the green light to be available for first team duties once more.
