Bale could sign for Getafe after leaving Real Madrid

Gareth Bale‘s desire not to uproot his family could see him make the shock move of signing for Madrid-based Getafe. Angel Torres, the club’s president said on Wednesday. ‘I spoke with the player’s agent this morning. He has been offered to us. We will consider it. I am going to have to speak to the technical staff.’

Sportsmail reported that Bale had various offers to continue playing. Some of those offers give him a route back home to Wales but the 32-year-old is keen to stay in Spain until the November World Cup. Bales leaves Real Madrid at the end of June. Getafe are Madrid’s third club behind the big two although last season they were beaten in the table by Rayo Vallcano.

The route from Real Madrid to Getafe is less often taken although last season they had Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral on loan.

Bale wouldn’t have far to travel if he did join Getafe. The club’s stadium is about a 30 minute drive from the Santiago Bernabeu, and about 20 minutes from where the Welshman lives in a £6.5m mansion with his family in the La Finca neighbourhood.

His golf club – the members-only Ciudad Grupo Santander – is also nearby, allowing him to continue his passion.

He has embraced the culture of the country, with his kids happy at school in Madrid and Bale himself enjoying the chance to attend golf events.
