A round up of the sport headlines from UK newspapers on 16 April

Manchester United’s trip to Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League is the focus of many newspaper back pages in the United Kingdom on Tuesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad head to the Camp Nou looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit after losing the quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford.

The Times back page leads with Solskjaer warning his side that “we can’t fall asleep again” while the Daily Mail says the United boss has issued a rallying call as they “search for a miracle” in Spain.  

Solskjaer has urged his strikers to make the difference against the La Liga leaders. According to The Guardian’s back page United’s forwards must “step up” and in the Daily Star Solskjaer backs his attacking players to “Gunn them down”.

Rashford a Barca target

Talking of Manchester United strikers, Marcus Rashford is a transfer target for Champions League opponents Barcelona. The Daily Express says Barca are “set for Rash move” while the Daily Mirror reports that the Catalans are plotting a stunning £100m summer swoop for the England star.

Tiger goes hunting

Barcelona are not the only ones on the prowl. After winning his 15th major at The Masters on Sunday does Tiger Woods now have Jack Nicklaus’s all-time record of 18 in his sights? In The Daily Telegraph Nicklaus says that Woods is “hunting me down”. Meanwhile, The Guardian says that “after the miracle of Augusta Woods can go strength to strength”.
