Michael Laudrup is reportedly unhappy at Swansea according to Sky Sports.

Relations with chairman Huw Jenkins are strained and Laudrup is unhappy with Swansea’s transfer budget for the summer.

According to reports, Jenkins and Laudrup haven’t spoken for the past week, and the Dane’s agent Bayrum Tutumlu is acting as a go between for manager and chairman.

Laudrup signed a new contract following Swansea’s success last season.

The club finished in the top half of the table and won the League Cup, beating Bradford City in the final at Wembley in February.

Due to Swansea’s success, Laudrup has been attracting interest from a number clubs throughout Europe.

Speculation is set to increase following the news of a rift between Laudrup and Swansea’s chairman.

Last summer Swansea twice spend £5 million on players Pablo Hernandez and Ki Sung–Yueng and Laudrup wants to spend double that on players this summer, hoping that by buying better players, the club will move even further up the table.

Laudrup is said to be interested in bidding for Spanish striker Alarvo Negredo but the Swansea board appear reluctant to pay the transfer fee required to sign Negredo.

Jenkins and Laudrup are set to have fresh talks on the matter and Tutumlu recently said that Laurdrup would be staying at Swansea despite the speculation.
