The former sprinter and holder of two world records and no less than eight Olympic gold medals told the Express he would be showing BVB exactly what he can do later this year as he aims to launch his football career with a dream transfer in mind.

If Bolt can impress Dortmund’s manager Peter Stoger during the sessions it would be one of the most impressive and anticipated cross-sport moves ever.

Just imagine it, the fastest man in the world flying down Dortmund’s right wing.

“In March we’re going to do a trials with Dortmund and that will determine what I do with that career, which way it goes, if they say I’m good and that I need a bit of training, I’ll do it,” Bolt told the Express. 

“One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United. If Dortmund say I’m good enough, I’ll crack on and train hard.”

Bolt is a huge Man United fan and has reportedly already spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson about the possibility of a future move to Old Trafford.

“I’ve spoken to Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word. He told me if I get fit and ready, he will see what he can do,” said Bolt.

According to reports Bolt has also discussed the switch with his friend Paul Pogba.

Obviously it is a lot easier to become a professional footballer when you are friends with Pogba and Fergie.

Bolt is expecting to play as a winger and combined with Peirre Emerick Aubameyang, Dortmund could have the fastest attack in the world.

Then again it is no good having all the speed and no end product.

Ahem, Theo Walcott.
