Latest reports suggest that Swansea are finally ready to sell their star player Michu if the right bid comes in their way. Reportedly, Liverpool are the favourites to sign the Spanish forward in the January transfer window (according to Tuttomercato).
Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins recently hinted that Michu may leave in the coming window if the bidders meet the club’s valuation of the player.
“We’ve seen with Tottenham and Gareth Bale that every player has a price. We are not in that bracket with Tottenham but they sold a top player. We are realistic about that side of things,”
“I would say Michael was about right with his valuation of Michu if you look at the current market, but this call-up enhances that further.”
“We know we have a very talented player and naturally we want to keep him.”
It is believed that Swansea want a fee of around £30million for the 27 year old forward. If they manage to sell him for that price, it would be an instant profit for the Swans as they had bought Michu for just £2.2million from Rayo Vallecano.
Even though Liverpool are considered as favourites to get his signature, there are other clubs like Arsenal and Tottenham are also in the race to sign the tall striker.
Meanwhile, Michu got called up for the Spanish national side which may further increase his market value.
On hearing the news, Michu said,
“Every Spanish footballer dreams of this and it’s so difficult. Few people can wear the shirt of the best team in the world.
“Let’s see if fortune is with me and I can play, although I’m already grateful to be called up.”
