Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso is back at Sabener Strasse after being placed in quarantine following a positive test for COVID-19.
The France international had received his positive test within a few days of reporting back to the club and missed the brunt of the preseason.
Bild reporter Heiko Niedderer capture the video below of Tolisso running laps on the training grounds:

While that is surely good news for the club and player alike, Sport1 journalist Florian Plettenberg is reporting that Bayern Munich is dropping the asking price on Tolisso.
Instead of a €20 million price tag, Bayern Munich would now accept a bid of €10 million to €15 million for Tolisso per Plettenberg (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia):

As Plettenberg stated, there are no bidders on the Frenchman as of yet. Many have speculated that Bayern Munich would use the revenue generated from a sale of Tolisso to find a transfer bid on RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.
The only club that has recently shown interest in Tolisso is Juventus, but The Old Lady only views Tolisso as a fallback action at this point. Juventus’ first choice midfielder on the transfer market is Manuel Locatelli.
