Rangel hopes for Michu stay

Swansea defender Angel Rangel says he 'selfishly' hopes fellow Spaniard Michu will stay at the Liberty Stadium but admits a move to a big club would be well deserved.

Michu: Has made a big impact at Swansea this season

The forward has been a revelation in South Wales since joining the Swans last summer from Rayo Vallecano for just £2million.

He has scored 18 goals in all competitions to help keep Michael Laudrup's men in the top half of the Premier League, as well as playing a key role in their impressive run to the Capital One Cup final.

His performances for Swansea have seen Michu inevitably linked with high-profile moves elsewhere, with big-spending Russian duo Zenit St Petersburg and Anzhi Makhachkhala thought to be keen.

And while Swans defender Rangel admits the 26-year-old has earned a move to a top club, he admits the Welsh side would be loath to lose him.

He told AS: "Michu is a scorer and these players are the ones who make the difference in a team.

"We have great players but Michu has been our goal man.

"I selfishly hope so (that he will stay). But if he goes to a great club it will be well deserved."

Rangel says he has formed a bond with fellow Spaniards Michu, Pablo Hernandez and Chico Flores but says there is no divide with the rest of the group, insisting it is a tight-knit squad.

He added: "Normally you tend to interact more with your compatriots but the whole team is a group and we are united."
