Laudrup not interested in selling Michu

Michu will not be leaving Swansea this month

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has made it clear there is "no way" Michu will be leaving the Liberty Stadium this month.

The £2million signing from Rayo Vallecano has been the bargain of the season to date, scoring 14 goals in 22 appearances for the Swans and taking the Premier League by storm. The Spaniard's impact, which has brought him to the attentions of national coach Vicente del Bosque, has understandably attracted interest from other clubs.

And Laudrup had previously slapped a £30million price tag on the midfielder's head, and he said: "There is no way he will leave. It is absolutely out of the question. One reason is because it is so difficult to get someone in right now, and the second is that he is happy here and doesn't want to leave."

In the wake of rumoured interest from Russian clubs Zenit St Petersburg and Anzhi Makhachkhala the Dane has again moved to make his position on Michu's future clear, and wants to avoid being left in the same position as Newcastle following the departure of Demba Ba to Chelsea.

He added: "Newcastle have just lost their top scorer mid-season and that is obviously very bad, especially because it is not easy to find a guy who scores goals like him."
