Roma target Smalling misses Man Utd season photoshoot

Chris Smalling missed Manchester United's TV photocall for the new season.

The Daily Mail says Smalling missed United's photoshoots for TV yesterday as he waits for his move to Roma to be concluded.

United's squad went through their poses for the TV cameras but Smalling sat out the event as he remains intent on leaving.

The 30-year-old has continued training away from the first team squad after asking United to resolve his transfer to Roma.

The clubs have been negotiating over a fee with United holding out for around £20million for the 30-year-old centre-back.

Smalling was absent from training on Tuesday and Wednesday last week as he discussed his future and with no assurances about his first team place forthcoming from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he has made up his mind to leave Old Trafford.
