Getafe president Angel Torres claims the club have been offered Gareth Bale on a free transfer.

The 32-year-old will leave Real Madrid at the end of the month after a trophy-laden nine-year stint in the Spanish capital, a period in which he has won the Champions League 5 times.

With Wales having qualified for the 2022 World Cup, Bale admitted he had lots of offers and joked participation in Qatar would delay his retirement.

Standard Sport reported in March that Bale could agree a short-term six-month deal, before retiring immediately after the World Cup.

Cardiff City have been linked with an audacious move for the forward, who has never played his club football in Wales.

Getafe finished 15th in La Liga last season but could offer Bale the chance to remain in Madrid.

Speaking to Onda Cero, Torres said: “45 minutes ago I spoke with Gareth Bale’s representative.

“They have offered him to us. We have to study it with the Getafe coaching staff and sports management.”
