Laudrup confident over Michu

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup remains confident of hanging onto prize asset Michu because "not many clubs can afford him".

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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
