Miguel Pérez Cuesta, popularly known as Michu, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a striker for Swansea City in the Premier League. He started playing with local Real Oviedo in the lower leagues and then moved to Celta de Vigo B in Segunda División B in 2007. In his last two second level seasons combined, he scored 12 goals for the Galicians. On 27 July 2011, after his contract with Celta expired, Michu signed a two-year deal with Rayo Vallecano.

On 20 July 2012, Michu signed a three-year contract with Premier League side Swansea City for a fee of £2 million.

Michu stayed atop the goalscoring charts by netting the second in a 3–0 home defeat of West Ham United on 25 August and the second in the 2–2 draw against Sunderland the following matchday.
