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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
