Talented winger Argen Robben has resumed this season much earlier than his team mates, according to reports in Germany.

The embattled Bayern Munich star has been a subject of speculation with a move away from the club, especially as contract talks have been pushed aside for now. He made his first appearance on the team’s training pitch a week before his team mates. He appeared along with Holger Badstuber.

The duo made their move to the club’s Sabener Strasse for the first time on Monday though the team is supposed to resume training officially on July 11. Both players decided to cut their summer break a week early. Both players didn’t return early for the fun as they were pictured performing various running drills in the training pitch. The club’s official handle tweeted pictures of the duo training hard ahead of the 2016/2017 campaign.

Robben has been on the sidelines since the first week of March, 2016 due to persistent groin problem. Badstuber, on the other hand, suffered a fractured ankle in February. Both players have fully recovered but would need to prove it to the team and new coach Carlo Ancelotti. Robben’s contract is set to expire in the summer of next year and has refused to comment on his future. The 32-year old player would need to do well, else he would be likely sold to admirers before his contract lapses and he becomes a free agent.

The other players would likely not join soon as they are mostly on national team duty for Germany at the Euro 2016. Others who have been knocked out of the tournament like striker Robert Lewandowski, who is also the captain of Poland, might not cut his holiday short but he is expected at the club next week Monday. If the German national team lift the trophy on Sunday, they might also not be back in time when the camp opens on Monday.
