Swansea City need Michu next season

Published Add your comment

When Michu moved from Rayo Vallecano to Swansea in 2012, relatively little was known about the 6ft 1in forward.

However, it took just 90 minutes of football against QPR for the Spaniard to be the name on everyone's lips. Picking up two goals on his debut for Swansea, and 20 more in the remainder of the season, Michu was an instant hit in South Wales.

During his first season, Michu was linked with a move to Arsenal for a fee as high as £35 million. He was clinical and looked a very dangerous striker. Michu even managed to get himself an international call up for Spain.

It appears however, that his stunning form in his first year in the Premier League was all Michu had to offer. An injury hit second year a Swansea saw him get a combined 12 goals and assists in all completions in 24 appearances.

Eventually playing second-fiddle to Ivorian Wilfried Bony, Michu was loaned out to Napoli at the start of this season. The Spanish striker has made just six appearances this season for the Italian side, and finds himself out of contract with Swansea come July.

Michu still has plenty to offer

Personally, I'm a very big fan of Michu. He is a very subtle footballer, and has a fantastic technical ability. Michu can certainly find his form again in the Premier League, all you have to do is look at Christian Benteke.

Like Michu, Benteke enjoyed a fruitful first year in the Premier League. The Belgium striker then seemed to fade away for Aston Villa, and now, he has found his feet again. There is no reason that Michu can't do the same.

I still feel that Michu has a lot to offer the Premier League, and that he could make the step up even to a side like Arsenal, for whom he was previously linked.

Can Michu find form in the Premier League next season? Who should bring him in if Swansea don't keep Michu? Let us know in the comments below!
