Gareth Bale at Wrexham?  Co-owner Rob McElhenney hints at deal after Wales qualify for World Cup

The Welsh legend saw his free-kick deflected past the Ukrainian keeper for the only goal in Sunday’s tense play-off for a place in Qatar.

It sparked emotional scenes in Cardiff as Wales reached their first World Cup in 64 years while Ukraine were valiant in defeat, with some of their players in tears after the final whistle.

Bale’s immediate future remains uncertain with his contract at Real Madrid – reportedly worth north of £500,000 a week – expiring at the end of the month.

The 32-year-old is likely to want a new club to stay fit ahead of the November tournament, and a tree move to Cardiff has been mooted.

But McElhenney may have another idea up his sleeve, according to a tweet posted shortly after the final whistle.

Quoting a tweet asking where Bale could play next season, he replied: “I have some ideas.”

Maybe we’ll see Bale ride at the Racecourse Ground in August.
