The top stories making Sunday’s back pages in the UK…

The Sun: Manchester United are so happy with Louis van Gaal they would snub Pep Guardiola.

Also: Roman Abramovich could not watch as Chelsea suffered their most embarrassing defeat of the season.

And: Arsene Wenger was a bag of nerves as Arsenal attempted to forget their nasty November.

Plus: Newcastle are plotting a £10million January raid for Tottenham outcast Andros Townsend.

Sunday Mirror: Manchester United were booed off at Old Trafford on Saturday after their sixth ­goalless draw of the season. Sunday Mirror Sport understands the focus will be on bringing at least one of the world’s stellar players to Old Trafford after Louis van Gaal admitted his current team aren’t good enough to win the Champions League.

Also: Chelsea have made Antoine Griezmann their number one target for the January transfer window.

The People: David Moyes will be offered the chance to make a quick return to football – with Swansea.

Daily Star Sunday: Gary Neville has urged Valencia to buy England ace Jamie Vardy.

Also: Seamus Coleman is loving the craic with Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane and believes England will be laughing on the other side of their face if they’re drawn against the Republic in the European Championships.

Mail on Sunday: Gerard Deulofeu wants to stay at Everton beyond this season because of the positive influence Roberto Martinez is having on his career.

Sunday Express: Louis van Gaal has confessed that Manchester United will remain Champions League no-hopers unless they keep on splashing the cash.

Also: Jose Mourinho insists Chelsea are not in a relegation battle, despite tonight’s defeat to Bournemouth.

Metro: Arsenal are in contention to sign PSG winger Lucas Moura and could offer PSG in excess of £30million for the Brazilian, according to reports.

Also: Manchester United target Thomas Muller is increasingly tempted to a seal a transfer to England, say reports.

Sunday Telegraph: Jose Mourinho’s future was back in doubt on Saturday night after Chelsea fell to their eighth league defeat of the season to Premier League newcomers Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge. It was their fourth home defeat this season.

Also: Louis van Gaal says Manchester United are not ready to win the Champions League even if they emerge triumphant from the most important night of his reign this week.

Sunday Times: Going out of the Champions League would pose no threat to Louis van Gaal’s job, thanks to Manchester United’s growing preoccupation with the Premier League.

The Observer: Manchester United intend to take a back seat when Pep Guardiola’s contract with Bayern Munich expires at the end of the season, leaving the way open for Manchester City to pursue the former Barcelona coach at the expense of Manuel Pellegrini.

Also: So much for the recovery. This was a defeat to sum up Chelsea’s traumatic title defence, a loss that four months ago might have been considered inconceivable but which, these days, bore all the hallmarks of this season’s regular failings.

And: Wayne Rooney had an alibi for this latest Manchester United disappointment.
