Usain Bolt offered two-year deal by Champions League-chasing club

Those two goals look to have done the job for Usain Bolt.

Bolt scored a brace for the Central Coast Mariners last week and while he remains on trial with the A-League side, the Olympic legend has received a tempting offer from elsewhere.


After retiring from athletics last year, Bolt has been diligently working on his fitness and hoped to prove himself worthy of a professional contract.

And if the Mariners don't make Bolt's dream a reality, perhaps a European club will.

Agent Tony Rallis, who is representing Bolt during his time in Australia, has revealed that his client has been identified as a target by a mystery club with ambitious new owners.


"There is a club in Europe that has offered Bolt a two-year deal, they have been taken over by new owners who have aspirations of Champions League football," Rallis told ESPN.

The 32-year-old will presumably pounce on the offer and make the move as soon as possible.


Bolt, who holds the world record at 100m and 200m, is a lifelong Manchester United fan but an opportunity at Old Trafford was always going to be unlikely.

On the same day as news of the offer emerged , Bolt vented his confusion over being asked to complete an anti-doping test despite the fact that he is not currently contracted to any team.

"So guys, I've retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this," Bolt said in an Instagram story.

"How am I going to get a drug test today? I'm not even a professional footballer yet. Seriously!


"So I asked the lady, 'Why am I getting drug tested when I haven't signed for a club yet?' and she said they told her I'm an elite athlete so I have to get tested. Okay then."
