- Usain Bolt has spoken to Sir Alex Ferguson about helping him become a footballer
- The sprinter wants Fergie to put in good word to him in order to sign a contract
- Bolt is set to prove himself as a footballer with a trial at Dortmund in March
Usain Bolt has revealed he has held talks with Sir Alex Ferguson about becoming a Manchester United.
The sprint icon is passionate about playing for United who he supports but he must first prove himself during a trial with German club Dortmund.
The eight-time Olympic champion told the Express that he asked Fergie to put in a good word for him.
He said: "One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United.
"I've spoken to Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word. He told me if I get fit and ready, he will see what he can do."
Bolt also said he has plenty of friends in the United squad and that would help him settle properly at the club.
He said: "Me and Pogba talk a lot. I watch and ask him a lot of questions. I want to play but it has to be in the top league."
Bolt has never played a professional game but he has been included as a footballer in Pro Evolution Soccer 2018.
The Jamaican is working hard in a bid to get fit, after a hamstring injury ruined his last race at the World Championships in London.
Thanks to links between his Puma sponsor and Borussia Dortmund, the sprint legend has a trial with the German side lined up in in March, during the international break.
Eight gold Olympic medals certainly gave the Jamaican reason to be confident.
