Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup back Michu to break into Spain's World Cup squad.

Swansea City striker Michu has been tipped for a place in Spain's World Cup squad by manager Michael Laudrup.

The Dane believes that the 27-year-old has enough talent to force his way into La Roja coach Vicente del Bosque's plans, despite facing stiff competition.

"He can make the World Cup squad, he has already proved it," Sky Sports News quotes Laudrup as saying. "Like in every squad there will be players who will be automatic selections and Vicente del Bosque will already know who.

"Players like Sergio Ramos, Andres Iniestia and Xavi, a certain number of players are already there. But for the final three or four places it will depend.

"Is it Roberto Soldado, Alvaro Negredo, Michu, Fernando Torres or David Villa? Will they take two of the five or three of the five? We are talking about a high level there so I think it will depend on what they are doing with their clubs in the last months of the season."

Michu earned his first cap for Spain in the 2-1 win over Belarus on October 11.
