USAIN BOLT SET TO MAKE MANCHESTER UNITED DEBUT IF HE RECOVERS FROM INJURY


The sprint king will pull on a Red Devils shirt for the first time in a charity match against Barcelona if he overcomes injury.

Champion retired sprinter Usain Bolt will live out a lifelong dream to play for Manchester United in a legends match against Barcelona - if he recovers from a hamstring complaint.

Bolt is committed to the September 2 charity match at Old Trafford pending his fitness and could line up with United legends Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes in the event, which has been organised to raise money for the Manchester United foundation.

A hamstring injury suffered by the 30-year-old Jamaican in his final race at the World Championships in London is the only question mark over Bolt making his Red Devils debut.

"This has been his dream for many years. He’s desperate to do it as long as he can get over the injury," a source told The Sun.

Bolt has recently spoken of his desire to play football now his athletics career, in which he won eight Olympic gold medals and is the current 100m world record holder, has come to an end.

"Everyone knows I'm always talking about (playing) football, I'm waiting on a call from Mourinho," he said.

"I think he's waiting until the last day (of the transfer window)."

Borussia Dortmund are also set to open their doors to an iconic figure, with Bolt’s agent having admitted earlier this month that a training opportunity has arisen.
