Michu joins Napoli: Swansea striker joins Rafa Benitez in Italy on a season-long loan
Deal also includes an option to make the move to Serie A permanent
Michu has joined Serie A side Napoli on a season-long loan from Swansea City.
The deal for the Spanish striker also includes an option to make the move permanent, should he be a success under Rafael Benitez next season.
Michu, 28, was a sensation in his first season. He became the bargain of the season after his £2m move from Ray Vallecano yielded 22 goals for Michael Laudrup's Swans.
However, last season was the polar opposite, as Michu struggled through injury, scoring just twice in 15 starts in the Premier League.
Michu has been capped once by Spain and will be hoping he can rediscover his fitness and form under Benitez.
