Speaking in an interview with MUTV, the fastest man in the world spoke fondly of the time he was invited onto the field at Old Trafford and mentioned a conversation with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson in which he was invited to train for the team.
Bolt remains keen on having a trial with United and cheekily stated that he is good enough to earn a five-year contract:
In my mind, I think I should do a trial and see if they would say, "All right, come on in," or if they would say, "No, you are not any good." I think I would be pretty good because I am fit, I am quick, I can control the ball and I understand all of the plays.
So I think if I do a trial, then they would say, "You know what, here is a contract for five years! You are 30 years old, here's a five-year contract. Let's just do it!"
It seems unlikely that Bolt will swap his spikes for studs, but you have to admire his perseverance.
