Bayern Munich has not had its full squad together in quite some time, thanks to this summer’s international competitions.

Now, however, the Bavarians are expected to have their full slate of players — with the exception of injured stars Alphonso Davies and Lucas Hernandez, who are both out of commission with injuries and Corentin Tolisso

Per the club website, the formal physicals are over and Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Müller are officially ready for action with Bayern Munich:

The last EURO 2020 participants have reported back to FC Bayern! On Sunday, Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Müller, together with goalkeeper Christian Früchtl, completed their obligatory performance tests before beginning team training. Under the direction of chief scientist and head of fitness Prof. Dr. Holger Broich, the three Germany internationals went through a course in which reaction speed, jumping power and stamina were particularly tested.

Here is some footage of the return:

Manager Julian Nagelsmann is looking forward to get all of his players back — and in sync.

“The lads have to rediscover their rhythm after the break, see a lot of the ball in training and then travel to Bremen for the DFB Cup game, and Gladbach shortly after that, with the required rhythm,” said Nagelsmann.
