London: Michael Laudrup has insisted Michu will stay with Swansea during the January transfer after the Spanish striker put his side in sight of a place in the English League Cup final.

Swansea manager Laudrup described the forward as the "bargain of the season" following a 2-0 win away to European champions Chelsea in the first leg of their semi-final tie -- the Welsh club's first victory at Stamford Bridge since 1925.

Michu, signed for just £2 million ($3.21 million, 2.45 million euros) from La Liga side Rayo Vallecano, scored his 16th goal in 25 appearances this season to Swansea a 39th minute lead in west London on Wednesday.
