Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has received some encouraging news from the treatment table as versatile attacker Isaac Cuenca has been given the green light after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a knee injury.
The 21-year-old picked up the knee problem toward the end of the 2011-12 campaign, and underwent a therapeutic arthroscopy on May 31, 2012.
Cuenca recently resumed training action, and Barcelona have now confirmed on their official website that the attacker has been given the medical all-clear to return to competitive play.
The Spain Under-21 international could make his comeback in the second leg of the Catalans' Copa del Rey quarter-final against Malaga on Thursday.
Cuenca is a product of the Barcelona youth academy, and made his official first team debut under Pep Guardiola in October 2011.
