The signing of the season could well be the biggest shock departure of the summer.
Michu has been nothing short of fantastic for Michael Laudrup despite the initial transfer from Rayo Vallecano slipping under the radar.
The goals, the results and the impact the Spaniard have provided have helped Swansea gain EPL security, win their first major trophy and guarantee European football in Wales next season.
So why would you sell someone who is the heart and soul of the team?
It would be a drastic step, but that's what this article is all about. Not only is he the main man in the lineup, the forward also recently signed a contract extension to stay.
Don't let that fool you. A contract is not worth the paper it is written on these days. All the contract did was ensure Swansea could get even bigger money if a crazy offer came in for the Spaniard.
Michu's stock is at an all-time high, and there are plenty of suitors who could provide Swansea with a seven- or eight-fold return on their initial investment.
Additionally, there is no guarantee of another repeat season. In fact, there are already worrying signs of regression. Just four goals in his last 15 appearances is concerning, while his demeanor on the pitch has definitely changed. A certainty for PFA Player of the Year just three months ago, he failed to even make the final short-list.
Laudrup is one of the most astute young managers in the game and would back himself to unearth the next Michu if given the chance.
Potential destination: Manchester City is a club that could easily offer silly money and get Michu away from Swansea, with Scott Sinclair potentially used a trade bait. With Balotelli gone and Dzeko primed to leave, Michu may be the man to reignite their EPL title challenge next season.
