Michael Laudrup A Man In Demand

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 27 February 2013, 10:22

Michael Laudrup is a man in demand following Swansea's Capital One Cup success and subsequent Europa League qualification. The Dane's stock as a manager has risen considerably this season  and he is now a reported top target for Europe's top teams.

The Swans will be determined to hold onto their manager but will face a fight this summer, with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona believed to be keen to lure him to Spain. He may opt to stay in the UK, with the Premier League's Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City also supposedly interested in acquiring his services.

Michael LaudrupLaudrup took charge of the Swans back in June 2012 on a two-year deal and rapidly won numerous plaudits both tactically and in the transfer market. Swansea's high tempo, passing game has once again caused teams all sorts of problems and with 11 league games remaining they are currently 9th, with a possibility of finishing in the top six.

Chairman Huw Jenkins will currently be doing everything he can to keep the 48-year-old at the Liberty Stadium and will even try and persuade him to sign a contract extension, with his current deal coming to an end next summer. Paddy Power currently have Laudrup priced at 1/4 to still be in charge come the first day of next season, while he can be backed at 5/2 to leave.
