Michu to Napoli? Swansea in talks over possible loan deal
The Spaniard has not gone on pre-season tour with the squad
Wednesday 09 July 2014
Napoli and Swansea are in talks over the transfer of Spanish striker Michu on a season-long loan, Press Association Sport understands.
Michu has not travelled with Swansea to the United States for their pre-season tour.
Bahia International, the company that represents Michu, confirmed to Press Association Sport on Wednesday that the clubs are in negotiations with a view to Michu joining Napoli on a one-season loan deal.
Michu moved to Swansea from Rayo Vallecano in a £2.2m transfer deal in the summer of 2012 and was the club's top scorer with 22 goals in his first season.
The former Celta Vigo star struggled with knee and ankle problems which limited him to just 15 starts in the Premier League in the 2013-14 season.
The 28-year-old Michu is under contract with the Swans until 2017.
Napoli's Spanish coach Rafa Benitez is looking to strengthen their attacking line ahead of next season's Champions League campaign. The Naples outfit finished third in Serie A last season.
