Transfer news: Michu plays down talk of move amid Arsenal and Liverpool speculation
The striker made his debut for Spain on Friday
Michu insists he is happy at Swansea despite continued speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool.
The 27-year-old made his debut for Spain on Friday in the 2-1 World Cup quailifier win over Belarus, and despite failing to find the back of the net, came in for praise from manager Vicente del Bosque.
His call-up to the world and European champions has only increased speculation that he will be the subject of bids in the region of £20m - either in January or at the end of the season. Arsenal, who are searching for a striker to provide competition for Olivier Giroud, and Liverpool, who may need a replacement if Luis Suarez leaves for Real Madrid, are the two clubs most consistently linked with a bid.
Yet Michu, who agreed a new four-year deal with Swansea in January, said he is not considering a move away when asked about the possibility of signing for a "top" club.
"I am not thinking about that at the moment," he told Spanish newspaper Marca.
"I am enjoying myself very much at Swansea.
"It's a modest team but we are competing in Europe and we already won a title last season, the first in the club's history."
Michu joined Swansea for just £2m in the summer of 2012 and scored 22 goals in all competitions last term as the Swans lifted the League Cup and qualified for the Europa League.
