With the Spanish star only moving to the South Wales club last summer, this contract is more about rewarding his tremendous form so far this season.
Michu has had a blistering start to his Barclays Premier League career.
Few would have expected him to have adapted this fast, but the 26 year-old already has 13 Premier League goals to his name in 22 appearances, and two goals in as many games in the Capital One Cup to help Swansea reach the semi-finals.
Michu unsurprisingly quickly started to be linked with the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal, and it now appears that Swansea are attempting to head off interest in their star asset.
“It was an easy decision for me,” Michu told the official club website. “I am living a dream here at Swansea.
“I’m probably enjoying my football more than ever. It’s easy to play with this team and tonight I have the chance to reach the first final of my career.
“I’m really happy here in the city with the people, the club and the fans. Everyone has been so nice to me since I arrived.
“I think the club are happy with me because they have given me a new contract. I am certainly happy with the club.
“I’m happy here.
“I’ve read and listened to all the speculation, but it doesn’t interest me, and that’s why I’ve signed a new contract.
“I’m enjoying myself too much because the team always tries to play football. All I think about is the next game and helping Swansea be successful. This is my life.”
