Per video captured by Sky journalist Torben Hoffmann, Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies, Corentin Tolisso, and Taylor Booth all turned in individual training sessions today at Säbener Straße.
Davies is working his way back from an ankle injury that he suffered while playing for Canada, while Tolisso is getting fit after a bout with COVID-19. Booth, an exciting midfield prospect, is recovering from a knock as well:

The three aforementioned players were not the only people training individually on the Bayern Munich campus, however.
Former Bayern Munich stars Franck Ribery and Jerome Boateng also hit the training grounds as both players are working to stay in shape as they search for new clubs:

Interestingly, there was a report from L’Equipe (as captured by @iMiaSanMia below), which stated that Bayern Munich was kicking around the thought of bringing the Frenchman back into the fold, but sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic seems to be against such a move:
Several people in charge at Bayern like Uli Hoeneß and Oliver Kahn are in favour of a Franck Ribéry return. Meanwhile, Hasan Salihamidžić is unconvinced. Ribéry's priority for now is to stay in Italy. However, if an approach from Bayern comes, he could change this mind [@lequipe] pic.twitter.com/m5F9lNKMDF— Bayern & Germany (@iMiaSanMia) August 6, 2021
Bild is reporting that despite the dynamic duo of Bayern Munich alumni being on campus, the club is not considering either player for a return engagement at this point:
Both are currently without a club and are looking for a new club. They keep fit privately and have already trained together in Ribéry’s garden in Grünwald near Munich. Now, with Bavaria’s permission, they were allowed to do a unit on “their” old training ground with the popular fitness maker (Dr. Holger) Broich.
Many fans would dream of a comeback at Ribéry. He already performed magic at the legend game in the arena last Wednesday, and chatted for a long time with new coach Julian Nagelsmann (34). A return is currently almost impossible.
Crazier things have happened, I guess.
