Gareth BaleUnited have been again linked with a swoop for Southampton’s Welsh international defender Gareth Bale.

The 17-year-old left-back is seen as one of the best prospects in Britain, a classy defender with an eye for goal and a fantastic repetoire of free-kicks – and United are among the cluster of clubs monitering his progress.

The Cardiff-born prodigy has five goals already this season for Southampton, and also scored on his competitive international debut. Incredibly, five of the six strikes have been free-kicks.
