Michu gets spain call-up
Del Bosque says the Premier League's top scorer, as well as Celtic Vigo striker Iago Aspas, who has been linked with a January move to Swansea, will make his next squad.
"Iago Aspas and Michu will appear," the World Cup-winning boss told Spanish television.
Both players will be given their first Spain call-ups in a friendly against Uruguay in Doha on February 6.
The confirmation comes after Del Bosque heaped praise on Swansea's prolific close-season signing for performing so highly at one of the Premier League's less-fancied clubs.
"Michu deserves to be credited for his superb season," Del Bosque said earlier in December.
"The way he has stood out in the league at a club like Swansea, which is not one of the top clubs, is exceptional.
"He's not an out-and-out striker and has been scoring a lot of goals like he did for Rayo Vallecano."
