Mauro Icardi has resumed training with his Inter Milan team-mates, ending a six-week exile.
Icardi has not been on the field in more than a month, since being stripped of the captaincy amid protracted contract negotiations.
The 26-year-old Icardi has said he has a knee injury, although the club has said tests did not reveal any problem.
The Argentine forward returned to team training on Thursday with others who had not been called up for international duty.
Icardi could be called up for Inter's next match on March 31, at home to Lazio in Serie A.
With 29 goals, Icardi was the joint top scorer in Serie A last season, sharing the honour with Ciro Immobile of Lazio. He has nine goals in 20 Serie A appearances this season.
Fellow Argentine Lautaro Martinez has stepped up in his absence, weighing in with four goals in his past nine matches.
