The Jamaican sprint legend, 30, will retire after the World Championships in London in August after a track and field career in which he has belted so far eight Olympic gold medals, 11 world titles and three world records.
Bolt has already made clear his desire to become a footballer, but spelling out his ambitions, the Manchester United fan said that he has the ambition to become one of the top 50 players in the world, if he gets the chance to play regularly, and he wants to be an attacker who scores at least 20 goals per season.
Warming to his theme, Bolt added that he hoped to have the chance to play football at the highest level and that he loves this sport and it’s been in his head for many years. In the last few months he spoke to clubs, and there have been possibilities, but nothing concrete at the moment.
Bolt previously made clear his dream was to play for United, but he is likely to get a taste of top-level football in September with Borussia Dortmund for “three or four days” of training.
Dortmund have rejected suggestions it is a publicity stunt for Puma, the sports manufacturer they and Bolt use.
Bolt admits that football is a very physically demanding sport, and he is not very young anymore, but he thinks he can play well for at least four years.
