Papadopoulos happy at Schalke
Kyriakos Papadopoulos admits it is nice to be linked with big clubs but insists he is happy to stay at Schalke at the moment.
The 20-year-old Greece international defender has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United as Sir Alex Ferguson attempts to bolster his ranks for the task of regaining the Premier League crown from neighbours Manchester City.
The former Olympiacos star is one of the most highly-rated youngsters in European football and other top clubs have also shown him more than a passing interest.
He is currently on duty with his national side at Euro 2012 but could be making an early exit from the competition as the Greeks have taken just one point from their first two games.
The centre half made it clear that he had heard nothing about any interest from the Red Devils and, while he would love to run out at Old Trafford in the future, is happy to stay in the Bundesliga for the time being.
"I don't know if there is any interest from Manchester United," he told Sky Sports. "It's an honour for me to hear that such a big club likes my football, but at the moment I don't know anything about it.
"Of course I would like to someday play for Manchester United, but I am a player of Schalke and I am focused on them."
