Gareth Bale's agent, Jonathan Barnett, has dismissed rumours that his client may return from retirement to play for Wrexham. The Welsh club's fans had been hoping for a sensational transfer after Bale exchanged comments with co-owner Rob McElhenney on social media last month. However, Barnett called the rumours "tongue in cheek," adding that Bale is enjoying his life after football and spending time with his family.
The comment will come as a crushing blow to Wrexham fans who were hoping to see the Welshman sign for the club. Despite missing out on Bale, the club is interested in signing Alfie May of Cheltenham Town.
