Swansea boss Michael Laudrup is at the centre of intense speculation as to whether he will remain at the Liberty Stadium next season.

The Dane is suggested to be 'uncertain' about his future with the club after disagreements regarding transfer funds with chairman Huw Jenkins, according to the Independent

Laudrup is understood to be deeply frustrated with the lack of ambition Jenkins is showing in the transfer market and it is suggested the 48-year-old is close to walking out on the Swans, with Real Madrid and Paris-Saint-Germain reported to be interested in his services.

Furthermore, the Daily Mail believes if assurances aren't made over his future soon enough, Laudrup could be forced into making a crunch decision in just a couple of days.

With the Europa League now added to Swansea's agenda for the coming season, Laudrup feels the club have to improve by splashing out on new signings.

He was rumoured to be targeting Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas, St Etienne's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sevilla's Alvara Negredo. However, the Swansea board proved reluctant in granting him his transfer wishes.

Their objective is to continue spending money at a steady pace, which contrasts with Laudrup's aims for the club. It has been revealed that he is 'frustrated' with the chairman for not showing any ambition to dig out funds which would help pay for these summer targets.

If there no progress is made in the transfer market, it is almost certain that Laudrup will be on his way out of the Liberty Stadium very soon.

After he inspired them to Capital One Cup success and a ninth-place finish in the Premier League last year, Swansea fans will surely be devastated to see their manager head for the exit door.

Though these widespread reports suggest they should prepare to say goodbye to Laudrup, unless assurances he claims were given to him when he extended his contract in March are backed up by the board.
