THE INDEPENDENT: The Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted he is "tired" of life in England and is eager to move abroad to get away from what he sees as press persecution. He added that he had already informed his manager, Brendan Rodgers, of his feelings. Also: Manuel Pellegrini claims he has agreed to take over as manager of Manchester City at the end of the season and just needs to put pen to paper on his new contract to finalise the move. The 59-year-old Chilean coach also confirmed in an interview with Malaga's Canal Sur radio station that he had chosen City over Paris Saint-Germain despite strong interest from the French club.

THE GUARDIAN: Luis Suarez has encouraged Real Madrid's hopes of luring him away from Liverpool this summer by admitting he would find it hard to resist an approach from the Spanish institution. Also: Kevin Pietersen will meet Andy Flower at Lord's on Thursday with the England team director expecting another positive update on the batsman's progress towards an Ashes return. Pietersen returned to the nets this week for the first time since he left England's tour of New Zealand before the third Test in March with severe bruising to the bone behind his right knee. Flower is still refusing to put a date on his likely return to action with Surrey, but is hopeful that he remains on course to play enough cricket in June and early July to prove his fitness and build form and confidence, before the first Test against Australia which starts at Trent Bridge on 10 July.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: England flew straight to the Copacabana at the final whistle and at times last night they looked already on the beach. England, who face Brazil in Sunday's friendly in Rio, will need to discover more belief and invention if they are to make the same journey next year for the World Cup finals. Also: Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted he would find it hard to turn down a move to Real Madrid, insisting he was not prepared to put up with the criticism he has faced in England any longer.

THE TIMES: Roy Hodgson was accused of taking England back to the Dark Ages in their 1-1 draw against Ireland at Wembley last night. Also: Luis Suarez has thrown his Liverpool future into yet more doubt by confirming that he would find it hard to turn down an offer from Real Madrid.

THE INDEPENDENT: The Test series against Australia is still more than three weeks distant, but the British and Irish Lions will face an equally extreme test of a very different kind tomorrow in weather conditions just about as alien to them as it is possible to imagine. Their opening tour game against a strong Barbarians side is expected to be played in 80 degree heat and even higher levels of humidity - a prospect described as "horrific" by the Welsh forward Adam Jones. Also: Roy Hodgson has rejected Gary Lineker's claim that England's tactics against the Republic of Ireland on Wednesday night were a "step back to the dark ages" for their adherence to what looked like a 4-4-2 system.

THE GUARDIAN: Roy Hodgson has insisted he is "not a person stuck with a system" as he was forced to defend himself from criticism ahead of Sunday's friendly against Brazil and the specific allegation that his preference for a 4-4-2 formation is outdated. Also: Mark Hughes walked into Stoke City yesterday with a sideswipe at Queens Park Rangers for the blot left on his managerial CV and claimed that working at a stable, well-run club will help restore his sanity.

THE SUN: England's game with Brazil on Sunday has been suspended after a court ruling that the Maracana Stadium is unsafe. Also: Andre Villas-Boas will make a fresh plea to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to give Gareth Bale a new contract.

DAILY STAR: Roy Hodgson has hit back at Gary Lineker's claim that his England tactics are outdated. Also: Mark Hughes returned to management at Stoke yesterday insisting: I'm no failure.

DAILY MIRROR: New Stoke boss Mark Hughes said he had to get back into management for the sake of his sanity. Also: England's friendly with Brazil at the Maracana on Sunday was last night suspended over concerns about the venue's safety - although the game may still go ahead.

DAILY MAIL: Sir Bradley Wiggins's defence of his Tour de France title is in jeopardy amid concerns over his health. Also: Luis Suarez looked to be on his way out of Anfield last night, following claims in Spain that Real Madrid had struck a £40million deal to take him to the Bernabeu.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: England's trip to Brazil was plunged into chaos last night after a court ruled their friendly at the Maracana could be cancelled over safety problems at the refurbished stadium. Also: Liverpool will resist Real Madrid's attempts to lure Luis Suarez away from Anfield this summer with confusion growing over the Uruguayan's commitment to the Merseyside club.

THE TIMES: The Football Association insisted last night that England's friendly international with Brazil will go ahead as planned on Sunday, despite doubts over whether the rebuilt Maracana stadium will be issued with a safety certificate. Also: After the briefest turnaround that he can remember in his international career, Alastair Cook will lead out England against New Zealand again today for the first match in the NatWest one-day series at Lord's.

DAILY EXPRESS: Theo Walcott could be pressed into service as an emergency striker against Brazil on Sunday as England's injury problems threaten to leave manager Roy Hodgson exposed. Also: Frankie Dettori could hardly have picked a bigger stage for his return to competitive action.

THE TIMES: Everything seemed to go right for Bradley Wiggins in 2012, but since he was knighted in the New Year's Honours List, things have not been so straightforward. Yesterday the Team Sky rider experienced the latest setback in a bitterly disappointing season when it was announced that he would not be defending his Tour de France title this year because of a knee injury. ALSO: As they prepare for the final match of a long season on the hallowed turf of the rebuilt Maracana, still unsure as to whether they will be back in Brazil next summer for the World Cup, England's footballers find themselves in one of those rare periods of introspection.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: Sir Bradley Wiggins suffered the ultimate Tour de France heartache last night after a knee injury forced him to abandon his attempt to defend Britain's first title in the event's history. ALSO: It never rains but it pours for England, who arrived into a mini-monsoon in Rio and into an intensifying storm about their technical capabilities.

THE INDEPENDENT: The Barbarians will have to turn in one hell of a performance in 80-degree evening heat to persuade a veritable army of critics that this peculiarly misplaced opening fixture of the British and Irish Lions 125th anniversary tour was not a lot more trouble than it was worth. ALSO: Bradley Wiggins will not defend his Tour de France title after Team Sky yesterday decided there was not enough time for the Briton to recover sufficiently from a knee injury before the start of the race in Corsica at the end of this month.

THE GUARDIAN: Liverpool will consider selling Luis Suarez but only for a club-record fee of more than £50m. ALSO: Sir Bradley Wiggins has been ruled out of defending his Tour de France title because of a knee injury which has left him with insufficient time to train properly for the event, which starts on 28 June.

DAILY EXPRESS: Wayne Rooney has been told by Paris Saint-Germain that he can name his terms for a £30 million move to France this summer - with the club ready to pay him £300,000 a week after tax. ALSO: Rio Ferdinand was last night slapped down by Football Association chairman David Bernstein and told he should know better after claiming English football needs a new coaching strategy to bring through a fresh generation of players.

DAILY MAIL: Luis Suarez last night delivered a savage snub to the Liverpool management and their fans who have stood by him when he admitted: 'I want to leave.' ALSO: England coach Gary Neville treated Brazilian children to a guitar rendition when he and midfielder Jack Rodwell visited a Sports Relief-funded project in Rio yesterday.

DAILY MIRROR: Luis Suarez faces a Liverpool backlash after confirming he wants to quit Anfield. ALSO: Theo Walcott could get his dream chance of playing as England's centre forward, thanks to an injury crisis.

THE SUN: Liverpool last night told Luis Suarez: You're going nowhere. ALSO: Neymar has slammed England's World Cup chances - saying they are not worth thinking about.

DAILY STAR: Rio Ferdinand has delivered a damning verdict on the state of English football and believes any improvement could be years away. ALSO: Defending champion Sir Bradley Wiggins has been ruled out of the Tour de France.

THE SUN ON SUNDAY: Roy Hodgson insists he is "more than happy" with the job he is doing for misfiring England. Also: Lukas Podolski is a summer transfer target for Borussia Dortmund... Mark Hughes has revealed how a pep talk from Sir Alex Ferguson helped him climb off the scrapheap.

SUNDAY MIRROR: Manuel Pellegrini is planning a secret meeting to thrash out his Manchester City blueprint. Also: Frank Lampard got a taste of things to come in Rio de Janeiro yesterday... Rene Meulensteen is set to become the new manager of Wigan this week.

DAILY STAR: Chelsea are ready to sell both David Luiz and Branislav Ivanovic to Barcelona for a combined £40 million. Also: Sulking Luis Suarez has been told by Kop great John Barnes it is best that he leaves Liverpool this summer... Arsenal are struggling to put together a financial package to tempt Wayne Rooney away from Manchester United.

SUNDAY EXPRESS: England boss Roy Hodgson faces Brazil in tonight's prestige friendly in Rio de Janeiro with a lack of firepower - and a blast at the foreign-obsessed Premier League. Also: Owen Farrell escaped serious injury after being smashed in the face by his Saracens teammate Schalk Brits.

MAIL ON SUNDAY: English football faces losses of up to £50m if England fail to qualify for next summer's World Cup finals. Also: Cesc Fabregas will meet Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova this week for talks about his future, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea all interested in signing him... Maria Sharapova has joined the growing number of tennis stars calling for Hawk-Eye at the French Open.

SUNDAY PEOPLE: Luis Suarez has continued his incredible rant over life in England - by blasting the Prime Minister. Also: Roy Hodgson believes a chronic shortage of strikers is at the heart of England's problems on the big stage... Nani is poised to quit Manchester United and join big-spending Monaco in a £20m deal.

THE INDEPENDENT: Liverpool and Tottenham face a summer of uncertainty after Real Madrid made clear their desire to sign Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale. Also: Roy Hodgson last night urged his critics to back off his depleted England team that will face Brazil at the Maracana Stadium tonight, reminding them that even Barcelona would struggle with a similar scale of injury problems - which now include Danny Welbeck, who is out the friendly.

THE OBSERVER: Warren Gatland has warned his British & Irish Lions to turn the other cheek and not react to provocation from Australian opponents in the forthcoming weeks. The Lions enjoyed a runaway 59-8 win over the Barbarians in their opening tour fixture, but their young fly-half, Owen Farrell, was caught up in an ugly first-half clash with his Saracens club-mate Schalk Brits. Also: Sir Bradley Wiggins is at a crossroads in his career after his withdrawal from the Tour de France and urgently needs to set himself new goals, according to British Cycling head coach Shane Sutton.

SUNDAY TIMES: Considering that the hellish conditions in the Hong Kong stadium seemed to some to constitute a danger to life and limb, it must be said that had the Lions had any energy left they would have returned to their hotel last night skipping gaily. Also: Real Madrid are ready to break the world transfer record with an audacious £85m swoop for Gareth Bale, as well as splashing out £40m on Luis Suarez. Combining the two Premier League stars with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema would then give Madrid the world's first quarter-billion-pound forward line... Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in the running to be Everton's next manager.

SUNDAY TELEGRAPH: Warren Gatland has warned Owen Farrell that he cannot afford to lose his discipline again after the England fly-half traded blows with Schalk Brits during the British and Irish Lions' 59-8 win against the Barbarians. Also: Kurtley Beale, who is undergoing counselling for alcohol-related issues at a private clinic, increased hopes in Australia that he may be available to face the British and Irish Lions after returning to action with his club side on Saturday.

THE TIMES: England ended a disappointing season with a flourish last night by sharing a thrilling 2-2 draw with Brazil. Also: There cannot have been many players in the history of tennis who, having swept one of the home players from the court, have been feted with quite the warmth the French reserve for Roger Federer. He speaks their language with a fluency matched only by the texture of his strokes. There is an affection for him on these courts that Rafael Nadal would kill for.

DAILY TELEGRAPH: Just as England fans were celebrating fine strikes from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wayne Rooney with a crowing chant of "it's just like watching Brazil", the hosts suddenly conjured up a goal from the old Brazil, from the old Maracana, equalising through Paulinho's fabulous volley. Also: Jose Mourinho is expected to be confirmed as Chelsea's new manager by Wednesday.

THE INDEPENDENT: This was not, from England, the proverbial joga bonito for much of Sunday's game, in fact at times - let's be honest - they were clinging on for dear life, but two goals and a draw at the Maracana is no bad result when the Brazilians are plain desperate to win. Also: Martin Guptill's historic century dented England's Champions Trophy ambitions and guided New Zealand to an 86-run win here yesterday. The result means the visitors take an unassailable 2-0 lead into the final match at Trent Bridge on Wednesday.

THE GUARDIAN: Jose Mourinho has arrived in London at the start of a week that should see the Premier League's wealthiest clubs, Chelsea and Manchester City, appoint the managers they hope can wrest the title back from Manchester United next season. Also: It is not often that Martin Guptill prompts comparisons with Viv Richards.

DAILY EXPRESS: Wayne Rooney produced a goal that any Brazilian would be proud of as England battled to a draw in the Maracana. Also: Alastair Cook admitted his England side were simply "not good enough" as they were sent crashing to another one-day defeat by New Zealand.

DAILY MAIL: Roy Hodgson claimed England came of age in the Maracana after a memorable 2-2 draw against Brazil. Also: Jose Mourinho was back in London last night, one step closer to a return to Chelsea.

DAILY MIRROR: Wayne Rooney scored a wonder goal to light up the Maracana. Also: Jose Mourinho landed at London's Heathrow Airport last night - and straight into controversy.

THE SUN: Wayne Rooney scored a wonder goal to stun Brazil in Rio de Janeiro. Also: Jose Mourinho last night broke his silence to confirm for the first time he is the new Chelsea boss.

DAILY EXPRESS: An emotional Jose Mourinho last night told Chelsea fans "I am one of you" as he finally returned as manager and immediately set his sights on winning the Premier League for a third time. Also: It is a selection which has created the sumptuous prospect of pairing Brian O'Driscoll and Manu Tuilagi - and the feeling is one of mutual admiration at the heart of the Lions.

DAILY STAR: Jose Mourinho insisted he had come home after finally being confirmed as Chelsea's new boss last night. Also: Roy Hodgson yesterday admitted England are long-shots to win the World Cup - because Brazil has the wrong type of grass.

THE GUARDIAN: Jose Mourinho has insisted he is returning to Chelsea a better and more mature manager than when he left in 2007, claiming he wants to stay at the club "for a long time" after agreeing a four-year contract. Also: Liverpool have identified Shakhtar Donetsk's Henrikh Mkhitaryan as a leading transfer target for the summer and are not deterred by the £22m price tag on one of the most coveted players in European football.

Also: The departing Football Association chairman, David Bernstein, has said that he will tell his successor Greg Dyke to back Roy Hodgson and believes that the England manager and his team will qualify for the World Cup finals.
