“I’ve always followed the Premier League from Spain and I watched a lot of Swansea games last season. They played good football and I liked their style.
“I also know how Michael Laudrup’s teams play, so I’m looking forward to being part of that. The coach (Laudrup) was fundamental to me joining Swansea. I remember watching him as a player – he was a machine,’’ joked Michu.
“I’m a bit sad to leave Rayo because they gave me my chance in the first division in Spain. I will always be grateful to them for that.
“The supporters have also been good to me. That’s why I wanted to Michu makes his move
