Ryan Reynolds is a man of surprises. He is an actor, an investor, and now also owns a football club, Wrexham Association Football Club. Reynolds is an incredible entertainer and also a hilarious person in general. In recent times, Ryan’s club Wrexham AFC which he shares with It Is Always Sunny In Philadelphia star Rob McElhenney, has been making the buzz thanks to the docuseries based on the team, Welcome To Wrexham. The Hollywood duo took over the club in 2021, and it seems like the actor pair is serious about taking the team to the next level. Previously, the owners even hinted about buying an ex-Real Madrid Galactico for their club Wrexham AFC.
Real Madrid is one of the most successful football teams there is. Apart from having an incredible record, the Spanish giants even gave rise to some of the best soccer players in the division, such as Christiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric. So which player from this legendary club was Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenny eyeing to buy?
Which Real Madrid star was Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney planning to buy?
Gareth Bale is one of the best left-wingers in the game and a very sought-after player. Previously, the Welsh icon announced his departure from Real Madrid after his contract ended in June of 2022. While a plethora of top-tier soccer teams showed interest in buying Gareth Bale, the 32-year-old Welsh player is yet to decide what team he plans to play for in the future. Amongst the many clubs keen to grab the player, Wrexham A.F.C. too was interested. It all started when co-owner Rob McElhenney replied to a tweet by ESPN UK that stated, “Where will we see Gareth Bale next year?” Rob replied, “I have got a few ideas,” hinting towards an offer from Wrexham to buy the player.

Gareth Bale has a solid record with almost 107 goals in 258 games for Real Madrid. The Welsh star is also the captain of the Wales National Football team. While MBE is currently playing for Los Angeles FC, he would have surely been a good addition to Wrexham, which failed to qualify the national league this year.
Apart from his appearances at Wrexham matches, Ryan Reynolds is also gearing up for the release of Deadpool 3.
