For a brief moment, it seemed as if Gareth Bale, at one point the most expensive player in the world, could sign for Getafe. Then reality kicked back in.
Either way, Bale’s future is still an unknown quantity after his contract expired following nine years at Real Madrid. The Welsh captain is focused on arriving at the World Cup in the best shape possible, as he leads Wales into their first tournament in 64 years.
The two linked up initially at Tottenham last season during the second half of the year, with Bale scoring 11 goals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
