Schalke Attempt To Lure Real Madrid Star Gareth Bale To Germany With Cheeky Tweet

Schalke have attempted to lure Real Madrid and Wales ace Gareth Bale to Germany with a hilarious tweet.

The 31-year-old Welsh winger spent last season on loan at Tottenham and has just 12 months remaining on his current Madrid contract.


His future in the Spanish capital appears uncertain and, should he fancy a change of scenery, Schalke could be an option for him.


The German side tried to appeal to Bale's love of another sport with a picture of the city of Gelsenkirchen with its golf course front and centre.

Schalke captioned it: "Gelsenkirchen is ready for you, Gareth."

Bale's obsession with golf has been well documented over the years. He upset Madrid fans in 2019 by posing with a flag that read, "Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order" following the Dragons' Euro 2020 qualification.


Schalke, though, will start next season in 2.Bundesliga after being relegated last term.

Bale's Wales were dumped out of Euro 2020 after a 4-0 thrashing in the round of 16 by Denmark in Amsterdam.

When asked by BBC Sport if that could be his last match for his country, Bale walked out of the post-match interview.


However, the former Spurs star told Welsh TV station S4C: "I want to continue to play.

"People ask stupid questions all the time, but obviously I love playing for Wales.

"I'll play for Wales until the day that I stop playing football."


Bale added: "We've just started the World Cup campaign, and we need to take this experience into that.

"I feel like we have a very good way of playing when we play well and we need to keep that confidence high, keep playing football and I think we can qualify for the next World Cup."

Wales caretaker manager Robert Page labelled the questioning by the BBC as insensitive.


"Like any other player in the changing room right now, he's disappointed," Page said.

"Why would he want to answer a question about his future? For me, it's an insensitive question.

"What's the point of asking that when he's just come off the pitch after a defeat?

"Emotions are raw, so he's done the right thing by walking away and gathering his thoughts."
