Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has insisted the only clubs capable of tempting Michu are Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, alongside a limited number of others, according to The Daily Mail.

The striker has set the Premier League alight this season, picking up his 16th goal of the season in Swansea’s 2-0 league cup first-leg semi-final victory over Chelsea.
A number of clubs have been linked with the player in recent weeks, including Real’s city rivals Atletico Madrid, but Swansea’s Danish manager has moved to play down rumours of an imminent exit.
‘I’m not the one putting the price tag on him. We all know the situation, the economic situation in the world, so there aren’t that many clubs who can buy him. There are some here. In Spain there are only two. Italy, I don’t think so. They’re trying to sell [in Italy]. Bayern Munich…so only a few, few clubs.’
‘And Michu likes it here. He’s happy where he is, so I’m really not afraid because I’ so sure he will stay with us for the next five or six months.’
The summer signing from Rayo Vallecano has been in prolific form and currently sits behind only Robin Van Persie and Luis Suarez in the race for the Premier League golden boot.
