Swansea City Agree Deal to Sign Rayo Vallecano Playmaker Michu

Liberty Stadium side to snap up talented Spaniard.

Rayo Vallecano have accepted Swansea’s bid for midfielder Michu, according to reports in Spain.

The Barclays Premier League side is believed to have made a two million euro bid for the 26-year-old who scored 15 La Liga goals last season.

According to, the Spaniard was given the all clear to discuss personal terms with the Welsh side on Monday.

Michu has a four million euro release clause from his contract but the Madrid-based side has been struggling financially, with players threatening to leave last season in a row over unpaid wages.

If Michael Laudrup does indeed secure the signing of the talented 26 year old goal-scoring midfielder then he will have pulled off a masterstroke, not least because some sources quote the cost of such a deal to be just £1.7m.

Michu had the standout season of his career thus far last term, notching up 15 goals in his debut season at Rayo Vallecano, this despite the newly Madrid based promoted side finishing in 15th place in La Liga.

Michael Laudrup may well see Michu as an alternative to Gylfi Sigurdsson, who the Swans failed to secure on a permanent basis when the Icelandic international opted to join Tottenham. Some sources believe such a move could well pave the way for classy midfielder Joe Allen to leave the Liberty Stadium.

Prior to his move to Vallecano Michu plied his trade at Oviedo and Celta Vigo.
