British newspapers' Sunday back pages are focused on the two Manchester clubs.

The Daily Star Sunday leads with a story that Manchester United have made a £30 million bid for Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels.

However, the Sunday Express says that Louis van Gaal's chief target is Daley Blind after Arsene Wenger blocked his move for Thomas Vermaelen.

The Mail on Sunday, like the Express, leads with the England cricket victory but also have a story that Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini plans to drop Joe Hart for Sunday's Community Shield against Arsenal.

The Independent and The Sunday Telegraph both cite Samir Nasri ahead of the Wembley clash, who says that Gunners fans are stupid to boo him, as he is not an Arsenal fan and not from London.
