Mid-Table Premiership club Spurs are leading the race to sign Bale
Man United gaffer Alex Ferguson has admited that spurs are winning the race for the signing of teenage star Gareth Bale.
With only days left untill the end of the January transfer window the Gareth Bale transfer speculation is still dominating the football headlines, and it appears only a matter of time before Bale leaves Saints for the chance of much more money and premiership football.
Many clubs have been linked with Bale including – Man United, Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool and even Real Madrid. But after comments made by Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson it appears that Premiership club Spurs, currently sitting in mid-table, are leading the race to sign Bale.
Speaking to Sky Sports Ferguson said ‘Southampton said no to us because they are looking for more money, which they have every right to do.
‘I am not exactly sure what Tottenham have offered but they have offered more and that puts them in pole position.’
With Arsenal pulling out of the running for Bale earlier this week and now Manchester United seemingly giving up to, it looks like its all up to Spurs. The most recent Spurs bid is said to be in the region of £10million.
