Michu: 16 goals for Swansea this season

Michu: 16 goals for Swansea this season

Michu elevated his stock yet again with the opening goal in Swansea's 2-0 win at Chelsea in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge.

The £2m summer signing from Rayo Vallecano has proved to be one of the bargains of the season, and he now has 16 goals in all competitions.

He has been linked with a possible departure from Swansea during the current transfer window, but Laudrup believes only a select few clubs could match the asking price.

"We all know the economic situation in the world, so there really aren't that many clubs who can buy him," Laudrup said.

"There are some here, in Spain there are only two teams (Barcelona and Real Madrid)... Italy, I don't think so. They're trying to sell... Bayern Munich in Germany... so only a few, few clubs."

Laudrup is adamant that Michu will see out the season at Swansea, although he admitted he could move on in the summer.

"Michu likes it here. He's happy where he is," he added. "So I'm really not afraid because I'm so sure he will stay with us for the next five or six months.

"I just don't know in the summer."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
