Gareth Bale Getafe rumor dismissed by agent as player leaves Real Madrid

Gareth Bale’s move to Getafe has been ridiculed by player’s agent Joshua Barnett, claim fabrice romano.

“I don’t even have the number of the president of Getafe,” Barnett told Romano.

The rumor that Bale is moving to Getafe emerged earlier today.

A high priority free agent

Bale’s time with Real Madrid is coming to an end. As a free agent, he will surely be in short supply this summer. The Getafe rumour, however, seemed a bit over the top until Barnett essentially shut it down. Before that, however, Getafe president Angel Torres’ remarks were quite interesting.

“We spoke to Gareth Bale’s agent just 45 minutes ago, they offered him to us,” Torres said in quotes reported by Roman. “We will consider and investigate this possibility.”

Bale’s career is something of an enigma. The player looks world-class when healthy, but has often struggled with injuries, especially with Los Blancos. For example, he has only made five La Liga appearances this season and scored just one goal. Last season, however, while on loan with former club Tottenham Hotspur, Bale scored 11 goals and provided two assists in 20 Premier League appearances. If he manages to stay healthy, the quality is still there.

At 32, Bale is as experienced as the players come. Although his playing time with Real Madrid was erratic, he managed to be part of several major trophies, including a large part of the Champions League titles.

Clubs across Europe will be ready to pounce for his signature. It’s not often that a name as big as Bale’s is available for free. For now, however, it seems safe to say that the Getafe talk is just a rumor as the player’s agent was quick to dismiss it.
