Liberty Stadium fears over Spaniard wanting to leave.
Swansea City fear losing leading scorer Michu in the summer despite the Spaniard signing a new improved deal in January.
Michu has been a revelation since following manager Michael Laudrup to the Liberty Stadium from Spain in the summer, and he has proven to a £2million bargain – arguably the buy of the season –after bagging 16 goals to become the club’s top scorer and one of the Premier League’s leading marksmen.
The 26-year-old, who is on the verge of a call-up to the Spain squad, was rewarded with a £30,000 a-week new deal in January along with an additional year being added to the contract to keep him at the club until 2016.
But despite holding onto their prized asset in the January transfer window, Swansea City fear losing Michu this summer for a fee in the region of £15million with some of the Premier League’s big players interested in him along with Russian sides Zenit St Petersburg and Anzhi Makhachkala.
A Swansea 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.”
