MICHAEL LAUDRUP has opened talks to become Swansea’s new manager.

The former Barcelona and Denmark midfielder spoke with Swans chairman Huw Jenkins.

And it is understood the pair are set to meet in Cyprus, where Jenkins is on holiday.

The Welsh club are considering their options with Wigan insisting No.2 Graeme Jones will be staying at the DW Stadium.

And Laudrup would be a perfect match having earned praise for his passing style of football in Spain with Getafe and Mallorca.

Michael Laudrup is now the big favourite to take over from Brendan Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium, pulling ahead of other prospective candidates which reportedly include Graeme Jones, Ian Holloway and Gus Poyet. The 47 year old former Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid midfielder quit as Mallorca manager back in September last term and is seemingly ready to make a managerial return.

The former Danish international started his managerial career at Brondby before enjoying moderate success in Spain with Getafe before a disastrous spell in charge at Spartak Moscow before moving to Mallorca.

By all accounts talks are in an advanced stage and it seems very likely that Laudrup will be in appointed by the Welsh side in the coming days or weeks.
