Barcelona are confident they will be able to keep Isaac Cuenca from the clutches of Manchester United and Chelsea.

The 20-year-old made his senior Barca debut on October, and has scored twice in eight appearances for Pep Guardiola's side.

Cuenca's contract, however, expires at the end of the season and, according to skysports.com, Manchester United and Chelsea are two of several clubs to have been linked with a move.

Barca, though, believe they will be able to keep the young Spaniard at the Nou Camp beyond his current deal.

A club source told skysports.com: "We are confident and talks are at an advanced stage."

However, it is expected that both Sir Alex Ferguson and Andre Villas-Boas will continue to monitor the situation of Cuenca, and a possible move to either Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge is not being ruled out at this stage.
