Gareth Bale has revealed he is hoping to start for Real Madrid on Saturday despite his lack of match action.
The world's most expensive footballer spent a second day training with his new team-mates on Thursday ahead of the weekend trip to Villarreal .
Bale has had just 31 minutes' competitive action this season - a substitute appearance in Wales' defeat to Serbia this week - and his national manager Chris Coleman has said the player is not ready to play 90 minutes.
But, speaking at a launch of Real's third kit, the 24-year-old insisted he will be ready to answer Carlo Ancelotti's call on Saturday.
"I feel good," he said. "I have been training in the last week with Wales. I have had two good sessions today and I got half an hour with Wales on Tuesday.
"Obviously I am a bit behind everyone else physically, but I am hopeful I can catch up as soon as possible.
"I think you will have to wait until the match to see whether I am picked or not. Hopefully I can get my fitness up straight away and hopefully get a place in the team."
Bale has been warned by Barcelona 's Gerard Pique that it may take a while to find his feet in the Bernabeu dressing-room.
But the £86m man, whose fee eclipsed the £80m paid to Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo, says his welcome has been a warm one.
"It was amazing," he said. "He (Ronaldo) is a nice guy, and he made me feel welcome just like everyone else. I am just looking forward to getting on the pitch and doing well."
