Michu Rejected Other Offers to Join Swansea City

New signing Michu says he turned down other offers to team up with manager Michael Laudrup at Swansea City.

The Spaniard also said how his new boss was the big factor for him joining the Swans as he had opportunities to join other Spanish clubs.

The Swans have pulled off one of the signings of the Summer thanks to Laudrup's reputation, as incredibly they've bought last season's top goal scoring midfielder in La Liga for a fee of just 2m.

Michu says its a great opportunity for him to play in the Premier League with Swansea City:

'I had other offers, but I really wanted to come to Swansea because of the coach, the style of play and the Premier League,'

'I've always followed the Premier League from Spain and I watched a lot of Swansea games last season. They played good football and I liked their style.

'I also know how Michael Laudrup's teams play, so I'm looking forward to being part of that. The coach was fundamental to me joining Swansea. I remember watching him as a player - he was a machine.

'I'm a bit sad to leave Rayo because they gave me my chance in the first division in Spain. I will always be grateful to them for that.

The 26 year-old returned to Spain to say an official goodbye to the Rayo Vallecano fans who have treated him well during his spell with the La Liga side.

He added:

'The supporters have also been good to me. That's why I wanted to return to Spain last night to thank them personally via a press conference this morning. I wanted to leave in a good way.

'But the chance to play in the Premier League is a fantastic opportunity for me. I believe the Premier League is better than La Liga, so it's a chance for me to improve as a player.''
