Michu: Has netted 16 times in all competitions so far this season

Michu: Has netted 16 times in all competitions so far this season

The Spaniard has been a revelation for the Swans since being snapped up from Rayo Vallecano last summer.

He has plundered 16 goals in all competitions, helping Swansea into the top half of the Premier League table and to the Capital One Cup final.

Michu's exploits have drawn admiring glances from afar, sparking inevitable transfer gossip, but the 26-year-old is eager to point out that he remains fully committed to his current employers.

He told The Sun: "All players want to get to the very top, but I'm really happy at Swansea. I'm not thinking about next year or big clubs.

"It's good when your name is mentioned alongside big clubs, but I'm living a dream in Swansea and I'm ready for the QPR game.

"I'm also waiting for the final against Bradford. We have a chance to get into Europe.

"My first year in the UK has been really good. I'm really enjoying living in the UK and I plan to stay here for a long time."

Growing fast

Michu has shone this season under the careful guidance of Michael Laudrup, another who has been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium.

Those in the Swans camp are, however, hoping that he will remain at the helm for the foreseeable future.

Michu added: "He will want to go to the top. There are not many people that can go to the very top, players or trainers.

"If he is linked with other clubs that is good for him.

"I think the gaffer could train Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester United. I hope he stays, but I don't know what is going to happen in the summer.

"He is the best manager I have worked with. He gives the players the liberty to play.

"We're eighth in the league and playing in a cup final. This is a club which is growing very fast."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
