Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenny jokingly suggested on Twitter that Real Madrid legend Gareth Bale should come out of retirement and represent Wrexham for one last season. Wales's all-time leading top scorer Gareth Bale retired after leading Wales to qualify for the World Cup 2022 where they crashed out in the group stage.

Bale congratulated Rob McElhenny after Wrexham celebrated their promotion to League Two after winning the National League. They confirmed the promotion after a 3-1 win against Boreham Wood. The former LAFC star said in the video, "Hi Rob, just want to congratulate you on your promotion and everything you’re doing at Wrexham." 

In a response, the co-owner made an interesting proposition of Bale playing at Wrexham for a year and he tweeted, "Hey Gareth Bale let’s play golf, where I totally won’t spend 4 hours trying to convince you to un-retire for one last magical season.

Former Real Madrid forward and current golfer replied humorously, "Depends what course."

The Ryan Reynolds co-owned side recently signed ex-Manchester United keeper Ben Foster who saved a crucial penalty in the 96th minute against Notts County. The keeper signed with the club for the rest of the season. Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenny will be looking to bring the five-time Champions League winner to their club which will benefit them on and off the field.

Such a move could also see Bale link up with one of his former Wales teammates, Hal Robson-Kanu, who has offered to come out of retirement to play for Wrexham with his wages going to charity.
