Getafe’s claim that Gareth Bale was offered to play for the Spanish club next season, has been denied by the Wales forward’s management team.
Getafe president Angel Torres, on Wednesday, claimed his club have been offered the chance to sign Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale on a free transfer.
The suggestion had been Bale may be keen to remain in Madrid, where he has lived over the past nine years.
But one of Bale’s agents, Joshua Barnett (son of Jonathan Barnett), has cleared up any doubts about Bale’s possible move to Getafe.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano on his Twitter account, Romano told him that he “does not have the number of the Getafe president” and made it clear that there was no record of the operation mentioned by the president of Getafe.

Immediately, the Getafe social media team took to Twitter and answered Bale’s agent. “Getafe, Getafe, Getafe. En ese orden,” tweeted the Spanish side, which translates to ‘Getafe, Getafe, Getafe. In that order’

The Getafe social media team referenced Bale’s infamous ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid – In That Order’ banner photo following the country’s qualification to the European Championships in November 2019.
The act was initially in response to Zinedine Zidane, who had just resigned from the role after a season of shunning the forward from first-team minutes.
Bale, who featured 258 times for Los Blancos, directly contributing to 173 goals, helped Madrid win 19 trophies, including five Champions Leagues, three Spanish titles and four Club World Cups.
Bale is currently away on international duty with Wales, having helped his side to a first World Cup appearance in 64 years.
