Will Laudrup Agree To Swansea City Move?

Will Laudrup Agree To Swansea City Move?

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins appears to have installed Danish legend Michael Laudrup as his number 1 target to replace Brendan Rodgers.

After failed attempts at appointing Wigan Athletic assistant manager Graeme Jones and former Chelsea defender Marcel Desailly - who both apparently turned down the job, the Swans hope to attract Laudrup to South Wales.

Whilst it's not been confirmed, and nothing will be until an appointment is made as Huw Jenkins continues the hard work to find a new boss, there's plenty of speculation and reports both locally and in Denmark to suggest that the club have held talks with the 47 year-old.

Hopefully the Swans can agree on numerous details for the move. Obviously Laudrup will want to know about the board's plans for the club, expectations, personal terms they'll offer him, along with a transfer fee and wage budgets plus future targets. If Laudrup is happy with that and terms can be agreed, the Swans can then finally look forward to pre-season preparations for what will surely be an exciting and certainly interesting season under a new manager.

The Swansea City board are getting on with their business professionally and quietly - unlike others like Wigan chairman Dave Whelan, who revealed every update and detail to Sky Sports News when Roberto Martinez almost joined Liverpool instead of Brendan Rodgers a few weeks ago.

Swansea City fans should be excited at the prospect of a such a high profile individual as Michael Laudrup to even be linked with the job, let alone show an interest and have talks about a move. In May, he told a BBC Five Live reporter that he was interested in a management role in the Premier League.
