The back pages in the UK today have their focus spread across several subjects, with the Commonwealth Games also muscling in on the football coverage. 

Let's take a look at some of tomorrow's talking points:

The Sun lead on Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho apparently confident that a deal to bring in Didier Drogba for a second time is close but also signalling that goalkeeper Petr Cech will not be content to be second choice to Thibaut Courtois:

The Daily Mirror ran a similar story, but it's one focusing more closely on the goalkeeping situation at Stamford Bridge:

Drogba gets a mention in the Daily Star, but there is also talk of Steven Gerrard being offered a further three years at Liverpool:

The Daily Mail, meanwhile, spreads its coverage between the Brownlee brothers' 1-2 in the Commonwealth Games triathlon and Andy Carroll's latest injury blow for West Ham United:

Alistair and Jonny get all of the Daily Telegraph's back page:

While The Times takes a similar direction:

Finally, the Indepedent plumps for a Commonwealth Games lead, but in contrast to elsewhere leads on (relative) failure, with Sir Bradley Wiggins' England pursuit team beaten into silver medal in the velodrome.
