Nine-time Olympic gold winner Usain Bolt has revealed that he has been in touch with Borussia Dortmund to play professional football after retiring from Athletics next summer. In the past, the Manchester United fan had talked about his desire to play professional football many times.

After enthralling the world by his unbelievable sprint, Usain Bolt will call time on his glorious career next summer after the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London. The Jamaican sprinter has expressed his desire to play for Manchester United on multiple occasions. He visited club's Carrington training ground after his triple success at the London games and had a discussion with then manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

In a recent interview to The Guardian, Bolt proclaimed that he has been in talk with German football club Borussia Dortmund in a bid to secure a deal with the club. While saying that he wants to travel to Germany to do some trails, he still harbors the ambition to play for his favourite team, Manchester United.

"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," Bolt said

"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!'"
