Swansea fear they could lose star striker

michu.jpgWe all agree it’s been a brilliant season for Swansea City inside the Football Transfer Tavern, but Rik Sharma of the Daily Mail has some news that is set to leave Jacks fans very concerned.

The club are reportedly concerned that their Spanish star Michu is set to leave the Liberty Stadium in the summer, despite recently signing a long-term deal at the club.

The attacking midfielder – who has also commonly played as a lone striker – has been a revelation since his £2 million switch from Rayo Vallecano in the summer, scoring 16 goals in 31 games in all competitions.

His form led to Michael Laudrup offering him an improved contract until 2016, with a pay rise to £30,000-a-week.

The club fear they could still lose their star man however if a big bid comes in during the summer.

A club source told The Sunday Mirror: ‘The club wanted to reward Michu, but also protect themselves.

‘There are still big fears Michu will leave at the end of the season. But at least the club is now guaranteed a big fee and will be in a good negotiating position when bids come in.’

Russian sides Zenit St Petersburg and Anzhi Makhachkala are reportedly both keeping a close eye on the Spaniard.
