Gareth Bale has been warned that shouldn’t expect to receive special treatment in the Wales camp.
And head coach Ryan Giggs claims he may also be forced into making a decision on his game time at the Euros next summer if his problems at Real Madrid are still going on.
Bale hardly featured in Los Blancos’ run-in last term that saw them reclaim the La Liga title back from bitter rivals Barcelona.
Indeed, the Welshman played only 100 minutes of their final 12 games as his poor relationship with Zinedine Zidane shows no signs of changing.
Giggs still sees Bale as his most important player and is not likely to make any rash decisions any time soon, but has hinted that something may need to change in future.
“There is no special treatment for anyone. I will look at each case individually,” said Giggs.
“It is always something, a player not playing or a late injury. I need to adapt. If it becomes a problem in six months we will have to see. I can’t see it being a problem for these games.
“He is a good professional and always keeps himself fit. I speak to him when he is on camp. He was available for me for every game in the qualifiers. It’s never been a problem so far.
“Is it a worry for me? No. That might change, we will have to see in the future.”
Bale has been included in the Wales squad for their upcoming games against Finland and Bulgaria and will be arriving in Cardiff from Madrid on Sunday.
Giggs added that he hopes that his recent woes in Spain will not be detrimental to the way he is remembered by fans at the Bernabeu.
“I hope he is remembered for the fantastic footballer that he is,” he said.

"To score twice in Champions League finals, to win it four times and to score one of the best goals ever seen in a final – things like that don’t happen every day.
“Gareth is a special player who can make the difference for me. He has also made a difference in key moments for Real Madrid as well.
