BR-UK StaffFeatured Columnist IVJuly 25, 2014

Saturday's back pages are split between the Commonwealth Games and the latest football news, but one story that stands out for the tabloids is Jose Mourinho poking at Manchester United's Luke Shaw deal.

Let's take a look:  

The Daily Express lead with Mourinho's quotes, implying that paying 19-year-old Shaw £100,000 a week could damage morale at Manchester United:

The Daily Star have a similar take, although they also have the picture of Didier Drogba signing for the Blues, as well as the news that Adam Lallana has suffered an injury that will see him miss the start of the season for Liverpool:

In the Daily Mirror, the focus is on West Ham, with reports that manager Sam Allardyce and the owners of the club are at loggerheads over the status of Mauro Zarate and Ravel Morrison:
