Bale, of course, is one of the most celebrated British footballers of all time, having won five Champions Leagues and three La Liga titles with Real Madrid.

The Always Sunny in Philadelphia star took to Twitter after his side beat Boreham Wood 3-1 over the weekend.

“Hey @GarethBale11 let’s play golf, where I totally won’t spend 4 hours trying to convince you to un-retire for one last magical season,” he wrote.

The post also included a video of Bale congratulating McElhenney on the result, saying: "Hi Rob, just want to congratulate you on your promotion and everything you're doing at Wrexham."

Bale replied by writing “depends what course” and tagging golf’s governing body The R&A.

Reynolds also chipped in, trying his best to convince Bale to get involved. He wrote: “I will shave a professional-grade golf course into Rob’s back if you’ll give Wrexham a season.”

“Update: after an online image search, it appears Rob does not have the requisite body hair to support this plan,” he added.

Will we see Bale turn out in a Wrexham shirt soon? Only time will tell.
