The 26-year-old winger, the 2010 German Player of the Year, has not played since the World Cup final for the Netherlands against Spain due to a ruptured hamstring.

Robben has been in light training for the past month, however, and is set to return for Bayern's winter training camp in Qatar from January 2 to 9.

The Bundesliga champions are hoping Robben can make his eagerly-awaited comeback when they resume league action at Wolfsburg on January 15.

"Arjen is about to start training with the team," said Bayern sporting director Christian Nerlinger.

"It looks very likely that he will be able to join in three or four times with the team before Christmas."

Bayern have missed Robben's badly, with Louis van Gaal's side currently sixth, 17 points behind runaway leaders Borussia Dortmund.
