The Frenchman should therefore sign a five-year contract with his former club on Thursday.

Most of the time he wasn't one of the regular players, and numerous injuries kept throwing him back.

In the end, however, he made a remarkable 117 appearances for the record champions.

With the transfer of Ajax jewel Ryan Granvenberch, sports director Hasan Salihamidzic has already provided a replacement in the midfield center.

No fee is due for the Tolisso transfer as the 27-year-old's contract expired this summer.

In 2017, Bayern had signed him for the handsome sum of 41.5 million euros.

Tolisso would already be the second well-known returnee for Lyon: Alexandre Lacazette, an old acquaintance, is coming back from Arsenal.
