OLYMPIC champ Usain Bolt is being lined up to play for Manchester United against Real Madrid.
The sprint king ï¿½ who is a huge Red Devils fan ï¿½ could appear in a glittering friendly next season.
Bolt, 25, was guest of honour at Unitedï¿½s first home game of the season against Fulham, when fans cheekily urged boss Sir Alex Ferguson to ï¿½sign him upï¿½.
Now Ferguson, 70, has hinted he could make the Jamaicanï¿½s lifelong ambition come true.
He told Inside United magazine: ï¿½Usainï¿½s a character and a big United fan.
ï¿½But itï¿½s interesting he says heï¿½d like to play in a charity game. It could be brilliant, and next year when we play Real Madridï¿½s Legends again, there could be opportunities to bring him up and see how he does.ï¿½
Just last month, Bolt told The Sun he would happily quit athletics for a spot in the United squad.
Fergie also revealed how he cashed in after backing Bolt to win the 100m and 200m at the London Games.
He said: ï¿½I must thank him because that was my biggest bet. Bolt was 4/5 to win each of them a week before the Olympics started. It was a brilliant bet.ï¿½
Ferguson added: ï¿½I watched all the Olympics. For us to get 29 gold medals was terrific. It was probably the most uplifting thing thatï¿½s happened in Britain for a long, long time.ï¿½
