Kyriakos Papadopoulos is a 16-year-old central defender who currently plays for Olympiacos, who have dominated Greek football for the past ten years or more.
Having already made his first team debut, he is the youngest player to ever play in the Greek league. He is a member of the Greek U-19 side, playing every one of their UEFA Championship Under-19 matches.
It has been reported today that both Manchester United and Nottingham forest have enquired about the central defender following his successful campaign for the Greek side, despite getting knocked out.
With Gerard Pique returning to Barcelona, it stands to reason that United would be looking for further support in our defensive positions. However, this lad is years away from being ready, so unless Sir Alex Ferguson is getting all ‘Wengified’, we should start to focus on players ready to step in to the first team next season, as Anderson and Nani proved they were capable of last year.
