Schalke defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos has cooled reports that Manchester United are on his trail.

The 20-year old Greece international has been linked with the Red Devils recently and although he is humbled to hear his name in the same sentence as the Old Trafford club, he is not getting carried away with the link.

"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."
