Corriere dello Sport has revealed how Gianluigi Buffon was not present for the Juventus teamís official photograph session, enhancing rumours of a switch to Manchester United.

The Juve players were gathered on Friday to take official team photos for this season, with the exception of some of their injured players. However, there was no explanation for Buffonís absence.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has been injured since the World Cup and isnít expected to be fit until January or February. However, due to his no-show there is now added speculation that he will leave for United, who need a new keeper.

Buffon has rarely been in attendance for Juveís matches this season, which has also seen his name linked with the Premier League club.
