In his most recent attempt to entice the former Wales star to come out of retirement and play for the recently promoted League One team, Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney disclosed that the “offer is still on the table” to Gareth Bale.

The Hollywood star stated he was prepared to give the 34-year-old all the freedom he needed to play any number of games of golf he needed, despite the fact that his attempts to get Bale to join the Red Dragons have not been successful thus far.

After a stellar career that saw him win five Champions League titles with Real Madrid and score a record-breaking 41 goals in 111 appearances for Wales, Bale laid up his boots in January 2023. However, McElhenney isn’t giving up on the possibility of seeing the Cardiff-born forward play for Wrexham.

“Gareth Bale is still technically available!” exclaimed the American, who took over Wrexham in February 2021 alongside fellow actor Ryan Reynolds. I’ll just let Gareth know that the offer is still open. I don’t know; I made the same request last year.

“Whenever you need to go, we’ll let you go to play golf. We can work out a way to get you ten minutes on the field as long as you attend training once or twice a week.

Wales is home to some of the world’s most breathtaking golf courses.

Although it’s unclear if McElhenney would be able to convince the former Tottenham star to come out of retirement, adding previous Premier League players is still a real possibility.

Speaking on Sunday afternoon at London Stadium, where he threw out the opening pitch before his favorite Philadelphia Phillies’ game against the New York Mets in the second of their two-game series, McElhenney was asked whether he could think of any specific players who might be a good fit.

We’re going to learn it this week. We’re going to have a conversation about it with (manager) Phil Parkinson when we travel to Wrexham in a short while, stated McElhenney, who expressed optimism that goalie Arthur Okonkwo, who was let go by Arsenal, might play again the following season.

The 22-year-old, who joined on a season-long loan from the Gunners and made 36 League Two starts while keeping 13 clean sheets, assisted Wrexham in winning their second straight promotion last season.

“There’s a very good chance [of signing him],” McElhenney stated. We are currently in active communication with Arthur; we are certain that he wishes to return to Wrexham, and we are eager to have him here. The only thing left to do is find a solution that benefits all parties involved.

Reynolds and McElhenney had previously discussed plans to expand the club’s SToK Racecourse home into a stadium that could hold up to 55,000 spectators, but the latter had more realistic expectations for longer-term goals of moving up the pyramid.

“That’s what we’re talking about now, in the very short off-season, to see if we can get it done again next year,” the speaker stated. We’ll see.

We simply consider it season by season. Our objective is to simply field the greatest team possible for the upcoming season and keep collaborating with the community to provide them with the necessities and requests they have been making.

A number of the Red Dragons’ future North American tour dates have already sold out, largely due to the success of Welcome to Wrexham, the documentary series that follows both of the club’s original squads.

Although McElhenney was unwilling to provide too many details about the third season’s unaired finale, which follows the just ended campaign, she did admit, “I can give away that it’s a happy ending.”
