Gareth Bale admits he may not be physically able to play in the Champions League final played in his hometown of Cardiff.
Bale admitted that he returned too soon after surgery on an ankle ligament injury sustained in November and that he is not yet fully fit.
Bale is prepared to play a substitute's role against Juventus.
There's been debate in Spain whether it would be Bale or Isco to start for Real Madrid, but it appears now certain that it will be Isco.
“I am not 100%: I haven’t played for six or seven weeks: I obviously had my operation which still really hasn’t recovered,” Bale said. “If I’m called upon to start, I will start obviously. But to last 90 minutes: I haven’t played a lot of football this year since my operation, so that would be difficult. Isco has been playing fantastically well for us, at the end of the season, so whatever the manager decides I will [accept it]. Whether he or I start, we’ll both be cheering each other on.
“I’m sure [Zidane] will speak to us and I’ll find out at some point, but I have been working hard, training now the last few days. We had a practice game on Saturday and I came through it all unscathed. I feel strong, feel fit, [but] obviously match fitness is a different thing.
“It has been a difficult season, so whatever I am required to do [I will do]. I obviously have battled hard to get fit for this, and whatever is the best for the team is the most important thing: to lift that Champions League trophy is the most important thing.”
