Multiple Olympic gold medalist, Usain Bolt, has said he is the answer to Manchester United’s Problems, claiming that he would be given a five-year contract, if he was to undergo a trial at Old Trafford.
The Jamaican sprint star has never hidden his affection for the Red Devils and once spoke to former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson about having a trial at Old Trafford.
He was once presented with a shirt before a home game.
The 29-year-old revealed that he would still be interested in taking up the offer, calling on Louis van Gaal to give him a chance to prove his worth.
Speaking to Manchester United TV, he said: “In my mind I think I should do a trial and see if they would say ‘Alright, 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 play.
“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!”
Bolt is the current world-record holder at both 100 and 200 metres, he is the first man to hold both the world records since fully automatic time measurements became mandatory in 1977
