The Guardian report that Gareth Bale is likely to stay with Southampton:
'Bale visited Tottenham this month and is understood to have been impressed but has resolved to continue his development at Southampton for the next four months. He may have a larger range of teams to choose from over the summer. Arsenal's manager, Arsène Wenger, is an admirer but said last week he did not need a left-back at this stage and saw him as too expensive.
United were unwilling to match Spurs' offer, £10m with £6m up front and the rest as add-ons. But Bale is thought to prefer United and hopes they will renew interest once the season ends. The Wales international will have a year left on his contract this summer and has rejected the offer of an extension for a further season.'
