Probably just another rumour, but I'll post it anyway.

United try for Greek starlet
Reports claim Sir Alex bidding for 16-year-old



Reports in Greece claim Manchester United have firmed up their interest in Olympiakos starlet Kryiakos Papadopoulos.

The centre-half is considered one of the best defensive prospects in European football.

Still only 16, Papadopoulos is already part of the first-team squad at the Karaiskakis Stadium and became the youngest player in Greek League history last season.

United have been keeping checks on Papadopoulos since he made his debut and they were one of a number of clubs to enquire about him over the summer.

Now it is claimed by leading Greek sports paper Fos ton Spor that both United and Newcastle have made firm offers to the Athens side.

It states that both Premier League clubs have confirmed they would be willing to pay €4million (£3.1million).

It remains to be seen whether Olympiakos would be willing to talk, as Papadopoulos only recently signed a new long-term contract with a get-out clause of €6million (£4.6million) and that is likely to be the fee they demand for the youngster.

Its good to see we're looking at a lot of really young players, i think SAF is setting up both the teams own future, and a potentially good future team for the man that has the most difficult job in the world, replacing SAF.
The fact that he is considered to be one of the best defensive prospects in European football speaks volumes, but whether he develops into a very good player only time will tell, but i feel if he joined us, his chances of improving may increase.
