What of the kids? Barcelona face contract dilemma with raft of starlets

Barcelona are facing a contract dilemma with a raft of their best young players.

Defenders Marc Bartra and Martin Montoya, midfielders Rafa Alcantara and Jonathan dos Santos and striker Ivan Cuensca are all off contract in June.

Barca have opened talks over new deals with all five youngsters, though agreements are not close.

Former Hercules youngster Kiko Femenia, signed only in the summer, is also unsettled as his deal has a clause stating he would be promoted to the first team at the end of this season, but his form for Barca B isn't warranting such a prospect.
