Huw Jenkins has hinted Michael Laudrup is unlikely to stay at Swansea City beyond his contract which expires in 2014.

The former Denmark international led the Welsh outfit to their first major trophy last weekend, with Swansea winning against Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final.

Laudrup, who replaced current Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium in June, has been heavily linked with the Real Madrid post amid uncertainty about Jose Mourinho’s future.

And Swansea chairman Jenkins says the club are already on the lookout for the 48-year-old’s potential successor in case the European Cup winner should decide to accept a new challenge.

“We always do that process of looking for the next manager, it never changes,” Jenkins told the Sun.

“We look at different teams and how they play, different managers and if they have the right backgrounds to suit us.

“You have to have an understanding of what is about on the market and what would suit our club.

“You can look ahead, whether it is for two or five year’s time.”
