Swansea City star Michu was rejected by Russia's biggest clubs last season.

Agent Roman Oreschuk admits he offered Michu to several teams, but was turned down flat.

"I offered him for €3.5 million to CSKA Moscow, Spartak Moscow and Dynamo Moscow when he was at Rayo Vallecano, but they laughed at me," revealed Oreschuk.

Michu is now set for a first Spain cap and in line for the Premier League Golden Boot six months on.
