Bolt has never hidden his admiration for Jose Mourinho’s side, and has on countless occasions revealed his intentions to one day play for the Europa League holders.

Now, that dream could finally happen, however, he will first have to recover from a thigh injury he suffered in his last race at the World Athletics Championships.

The 30-year-old could not have a fairytale ending to his illustrious career after pulling up with what appeared to be a hamstring injury in the final of the 4x100m relay.

The Jamaican, last week, disclosed his intensions of switching to professional football following his retirement from athletics.

If he is able to make a swift return from his injury, though, he will feature in the charity match between Manchester United legends and their equivalent from Barcelona.

The Red Devils team will be coached by legend Bryan Robson.
