Zinedine Zidane remains unsure on Gareth Bale's long-term Real Madrid future after Sunday's final game of the season.
The Welshman has been out of the side since last month's defeat to Rayo Vallecano but Zidane has confirmed the 29-year-old will be back in the squad for the visit of Real Betis.
However, Zidane admits he does not know if it will be Bale's final game for the club with speculation rife his six-year stay in Spain could be about to end.
Ahead of tomorrow's game, Zidane refused to speculate, saying: "He'll be part of the squad tomorrow and that's all I can tell you.
"You'll see the team that we put out. I don't know whether this will be his last game.
"We're at the end of the season and next year there'll be changes, but I don't know whether this will be his last game or not".
Bale is not the only Real player whose future is uncertain as the Spanish giants lick their wounds after a campaign which, aside from winning the FIFA Club World Cup in December, has been a huge disappointment.
The likes of Keylor Navas, Toni Kroos and Isco have been linked with moves away as the Spanish giants look to regroup after failing to mount a genuine La Liga title challenge or reach either the Champions League or Copa del Rey finals.
The 13-time European champions have already lost 11 times in La Liga this season - their worst record this century - and are certain to finish third, well behind arch-rivals Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
