Sad Reports Emerge Regarding The Future Of Fantasy Football Legend Michu

Ask somebody who Swansea City's current striking options are, and chances are they will reply with Bafetimbi Gomis, Andre Ayew, Eder, and "Why did you ask me such a random question?", but one name they are not likely to name is that of Michu.

The Spaniard arrived as a relative unknown back in 2012, and went on to star as Swansea managed to avoid second season syndrome and grew from strength to strength in the Premier League.

That year Michu was a fantasy football revelation, and he delighted managers with his consistent goalscoring and assist making, but now it not only seems that we may never see him in the Premier League ever again, but he may be retiring from the game for good.


According to The Mirror, the Spanish striker is considering hanging up his boots as he continues to struggle with an ankle injury that has decimated his last two seasons of professional football.

Spanish sides Rayo Vallecano and Granada and Scottish champions Celtic had all expressed an interest in the Spanish international.

But it is understood Michu's representatives informed the Glasgow giants that he was weighing up his future in the game after undergoing yet another operation on the ankle problem that has ruined his last two seasons.

It doesn't help that Michu is currently in contract limbo as he wants Swansea to pay out the remainder of his contract, but the Welsh club seem reluctant to do so. It seems as though the most likely option is for an agreement to be reached and the contract to be mutually terminated, but as of yet that has not happened.


Swansea had been unwilling to meet the forward's request to pay up the £1.5million remaining on the final year of his contract, while clubs weighing up a move for him have been put off by the prospect of picking up his £40,000-a-week salary.

It is thought a mutual termination is now the most likely outcome, with Michu pocketing a few smaller pay-off than he had initially sought — and it could prove to be his last act as a footballer.

Hopefully Michu can come back from his latest operation and find a team that are willing to pay his wages, as it would be a shame if he was forced to retire at just 29 years of age.
