Bolt to star for United... ?

2012-09-05 09:51

Cape Town - Multiple Olympic champion Usain Bolt is being lined up to play for English Premiership giants Manchester United against Spanish side Real Madrid.

According to The Sun website, the Jamaican sprint king - who is a huge Red Devils fan - could appear in a glittering friendly next season.

Bolt, 25, was guest of honour at United’s first home game of the season against Fulham, when fans urged boss Sir Alex Ferguson to “sign him up”.

Now Ferguson, 70, has hinted he could make the Jamaican’s lifelong ambition come true.

He told Inside United magazine: “Usain’s a character and a big United fan.

“But it’s interesting he says he’d like to play in a charity game. It could be brilliant, and next year when we play Real Madrid’s Legends again, there could be opportunities to bring him up and see how he does.”

Last month, Bolt said he would happily quit athletics for a spot in the United squad.
