Anzhi, Shakhtar chasing Swansea attacker Michu

Swansea City face a battle to keep hold of star striker Michu.

The Daily Mail says Shakhtar Donetsk and Anzhi Makhachkala are both showing interest in Swansea striker Michu.

Swans manager Michael Laudrup slapped a £30million price tag on Michu in a bid to scare off potential interest.

He said: "I don't want to let him go, sometimes the offer can be so big you have to accept but I really don't think clubs are going to pay so much money for him.

"We have the example of what Liverpool paid for Joe Allen, if they have to pay double for Michu there are few clubs who could afford that.

"Joe went to Liverpool and you know more or less what they paid for him, but a guy who has scored many goals must be worth a lot more, so you work out the figures."
