Granada confirm Michu interest

Granada sporting director Juan Carlos Cordero has confirmed his club’s interest in Swansea City striker Michu.

Michu rose to prominence under Granada boss Jose Ramon Sandoval during the 2011-12 campaign, when he scored 15 goals in 37 La Liga appearances for Rayo Vallecano, before joining Swansea the following summer.

“[Michu] is close to [Coach Jose Ramon] Sandoval because [Sandoval] was the one who gave him his opportunity in La Liga,” Cordero told EFE.

“He’d be a very important player for Granada, but he has a contract with his club, we already have players in his position and there’s a financial situation to comply with.

“We like Michu and have spoken with him and his agent but not about a deal, negotiations or anything like that.”
