Premier League — 08 June 2013

Michael Laudrup is being linked with a move away from Swansea Last season Michael Laudrup was one of the resounding successes of the Premier League.

He came in to replace Liverpool-bound Brendan Rodgers and helped Swansea to the Capital One Cup, their first ever piece of silverware.

However, in the last few months of the season the Swans form seemed to dip.

The Dane wants to add to his squad this summer, so that his team can have a strong start to the new campaign. It seems though he is at loggerheads with the Swans board about how much he will have to spend this summer.


Although he has denied he wants to leave the club, Laudrup is believed to be frustrated at what he sees as lack of ambition on the part of the Swansea hierarchy. The former-Getafe boss has given the Swansea board a list of players he wants to sign this summer.


The Swans were expected to struggle this season after Rodgers left, but in terms of team development, the Swans have moved forward under Laudrup, and he has perhaps even improved the style of the team.

It would be a shame for Swansea to have to find another boss and waste all Laudrup’s hard work from last season, but it is currently looking like a big possibility.


Laudrup has been linked with moves to a number of clubs this season, including a move to Everton to replace Manchester United-bound David Moyes. However, Laudrup ‘s agent stated he wanted to stay in Wales and the minimum fee release of £10million would have been too much for Everton anyway.

The latest club to be linked with the Dane is Turkish giants Fenerbache. A link Laudrup’s agent has strenuously denied.


It is vital that Swansea keep Michael Laudrup this summer. It seems like he fits in with the clubs football philosophy and he filled big boots when he replaced Rodgers as Swans boss. If the Dane leaves, he will be very difficult to replace.

Will Michael Laudrup leave Swansea this summer?
