Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has warned potential suitors for top scorer Michu they will have to part with up to £30million to secure the Spaniard's services, reports the London Evening Standard.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has warned potential suitors for top scorer Michu they will have to part with up to £30million to secure the Spaniard's services, reports the London Evening Standard.

Michu's double in the 2-0 win at Arsenal took him to 10 goals from 15 top-flight appearances, putting him level with Robin van Persie, Luis Suarez, and Demba Ba.

Laudrup 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.

"I don't think anyone will come with that money so he will stay here."
