This lad may only be 16, but that hasn’t stopped the papers speculating about a potential move to the European champions!
Newspaper reports indicate that Manchester United are lining up a January swoop for Kyriakos Papadopoulos, the young Olypmiakos defender
According to The Sun, Sir Alex Ferguson is willing to part with £3million to add Papadopoulos to his back-line options at Old Trafford.
The 16-year-old centre-back became the youngest player ever in the Greek first division when he made his debut against Atromitos last December, and he has attracted interest from a number of English clubs. (goal.com)
Kyriakos is tipped to be a star of the future, and clearly Sir Alex is considering options for the next generation of Man United players. Jonny Evans has been given a few chances this term, so maybe he sees a potential future pairing of the young Greek with the 20-year-old Northern Ireland international? In Vidic and Ferdinand, the Old Trafford club has one of the best centre back pairings in the world, but it is very wise for Ferguson to always be thinking one step ahead. Do Red Devils fans think that the club will retain their titles this season?
