Cuenca attracted enquiries from Cardiff City over the summer.
Jose Maria Orobitg told Fichajes.com: "He's just returned from injury and still has two years on his contract. A loan will be the easiest way out. If Barca has not given him many minutes before January, interested teams will try to sign him.
"He wants to go abroad and not stay in Spain."
