The top stories making Tuesday’s back pages in the UK…
The Sun: Bacary Sagna says his Manchester City team-mates cannot use tiredness as an excuse for their dip in form.
Also: Carlo Ancelotti is ready to wait with Pep Guardiola for the Manchester United job.
And: Garry Monk is set to be axed by Swansea today — with a £3million pay off.
Plus: Carlisle keeper Mark Gillespie has told how he was stranded in a flooded house — just as his team-mates were winning in the FA Cup.
Daily Mirror: Arsenal have made an enquiry over Celta Vigo star Nolito as they look to firm up January transfer plans.
Also: Versatile Sam Byram has triggered an £8million tug-of-war between Everton and Sunderland by snubbing a new deal at Leeds.
Daily Star: Italy boss Antonio Conte has emerged as a leading candidate to replace under-fire Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
Also: Liverpool are looking to sign former Manchester United forward Giuseppe Rossi.
Daily Mail: Fulham’s search for a new boss is not yet over, although Stuart Gray arrived at the club and took training on Monday and is expected to be in charge for the derby against Brentford on Saturday.
Daily Express: Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has been left ‘annoyed’ after midfielder Adrien Rabiot demanded a January move.
Also: Swansea are ready to turn to former manager Brendan Rodgers with Garry Monk on the brink of losing his job.
Metro: Chelsea’s crisis continues after a shock defeat at home to Bournemouth at the weekend, and it’s fair to say things aren’t looking too rosy in the transfer market either.
Also: Arsenal have been sending scouts to watch Napoli, and agent Joao Santos believes they are taking a look at his client, Jorginho.
The Times: Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that he is “worried” by Jürgen Klopp’s revival of Liverpool, adding to Manchester United’s concerns as they fight to avoid elimination from the Champions League this evening.
The Guardian: It remains a question of when and not if Garry Monk loses his job as Swansea City manager on the back of a dismal run of results that has left the club one point above the relegation zone, yet it is possible that the silence at the Liberty Stadium will continue for another 24 hours because Huw Jenkins, the chairman, is due to be in London on Tuesday collecting his OBE.
The Independent: Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to wait until the summer of 2017 to return to management at a club with a “good project” – opening up the prospect of a move to Manchester United.
