According to a tweet from Bild reporter Heiko Niedderer, Bayern Munich center-back Jerome Boateng did not attend the team’s annual photo shoot with sponsor Paulaner. The absence comes on the heels of Boateng not being used in Bayern’s 6-1 victory over Mainz 05 yesterday and the 30-year-old training on his own earlier today:

Not at the Lederhosen shoot: Jérôme Boateng!

More, Bild is now reporting that Boateng could move on to Juventus, where Giorgio Chiellini just went down with a long-term ACL injury. Surely, Boateng could provide a stable presence on the back-line during Chiellini’s absence:

Boateng also trained on his own this morning rather than with the team as well. This quick scan of the group (as captured by @HomeFCB) seems to verify that Boateng was, indeed, not in the picture:

Sport1 reporter Stefan Kumberger captured the video of Boateng training privately this morning.

@JB17Official For the time being, he does not train with the team. He completes an individual training on the next field. @FCBayern @SPORT1 #FCBM05
