WHAT HAPPENED? After Wrexham clinched promotion to League Two on Saturday, fans have eagerly speculated about potential high-profile summer signings. Those players would likely need to be in the final stages of their careers and wanting to finish on a fun note, with Wales legend Bale floated as an option.

"I will shave a professional-grade golf course into Rob’s back if you’ll give Wrexham a season," Reynolds wrote in a response to Bale's tweet about golfing with McElhenney, though Reynolds later added that he was unsure his friend had "requisite body hair to support this plan".

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Despite their status as a lower-tier club, Wrexham are uniquely able to target players other teams in their division can only dream of pursuing, thanks to the global profile of their Hollywood ownership. That could give them an advantage in their quest to secure back-to-back promotions.

Bale retired after the 2022 World Cup and has been seen regularly on the golf course. It's unclear whether he would be willing to return to football in any capacity.
