Who Are Ya? Michu (Swansea)
Your whistle-stop guide to the latest Premier League arrivals
Name: Michu (Miguel Pérez Cuesta)
Signed from: Rayo Vallecano
Fee: £2 million.
Did you know?
Michu was La Liga’s highest scoring midfielder last season with 15 strikes.
What’s the deal?
The Spanish midfielder had widely been tipped to join Michael Laudrup’s Swans. He’s now passed his medical and inked a three-year contract.
Cash-strapped Rayo were forced to let one of their star men go for well below his release clause to help ease their financial woes.
What do they say?
“I’m very happy. I had other offers, but I really wanted to come to Swansea because of the coach (Michael Laudrup), 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.
