‘I don’t have his number!’ – Bale agent laughs off shock Getafe transfer link after huge claim from club president

The Welshman is set to move on to a new challenge this summer after nine trophy-laden years at Santiago Bernabeu

One of Gareth Bale’s representatives, Joshua Barnett, has laughed off talk of the Wales international remaining in Spain on the back of his departure from Real Madrid as a free agent, with the son of Jonathan Barnett – the man who manages the 32-year- old’s career – claiming to have had no contact with La Liga minnows Getafe.

Bale has spent the last nine years of his career at Santiago Bernabeu, where he has won three Liga titles and five Champions League crowns while scoring more than 100 goals.

His role in the squad was reduced in recent seasons however, and the club have confirmed that his contract will not be extended beyond June 30.

Getafe reveal Bale transfer offer

Bale has been strongly linked with a return to the Premier League after previous spells at Tottenham and Southampton, but there have been suggestions that his agents are looking for other suitors in Spain.

Getafe president Angel Torres has claimed that representatives of a man heading to the World Cup finals in Qatar later this year have been in touch to gauge whether they would be interested in bringing him to Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

The Madrid-based club are considered among the lesser clubs in La Liga and certainly won’t be rivaling the Blancos for top honors in the Spanish capital, but Torres sees Bale’s arrival as a realistic “possibility”.

“Someone may take it as a joke, but 45 or 50 minutes ago I spoke with his agents, and they offered him to us. It is not a joke,” the Getafe president has told reporters.

“I have to think about it and talk to the coach. I don’t know if he will come. Of course it’s a possibility, all great footballers are.

“They have offered it to me and I have kindly listened. From there I will consult with the coach. Anything is possible.”
