UK Back Pages: Wayne Rooney Is 'Back,' Papers Link Sadio Mane to Man United
Jon Super/Associated Press

It may be a bit premature to declare Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney "back," but one wouldn't know it by reading Sunday's back pages.

Rooney, out of form for most of United's campaign, scored a well-taken winner on Saturday as the Red Devils topped Swansea City 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Rooney was hailed for his performance. 

Mirror Sport leads with Rooney while also linking United with a move for Sadio Mane and Manchester City with a move for unsettled Real Madrid star Isco.

The Star relays related news with similar United and City links while also lining Manchester United up with a move for Lazio's Felipe Anderson.

The Mail on Sunday Sport hails Sergio Aguero's heroics at Watford and cites the row between Mane and Ronald Koeman as the reason for Manchester United's swoop.

Express Sport focuses on Liverpool's failings and Jurgen Klopp's anger as a result.

The Mail on Sunday simply declares Rooney is "back."
