Usain Bolt made headlines across the world this week after scoring his first two goals as a footballer for Central Coast Mariners in Australia’s A-League.
Now it’s been reported that the multiple Olympic gold medallist turned goal machine is wanted by a club in Europe. Could the Jamaican star be headed to England?
The sprinter’s agent, Tony Rallis, told ESPN that a club in Europe want to sign Bolt on a two year deal and the club in question reportedly have new owners and ambitions of playing Champions League football.
While that doesn’t narrow things down much, ESPN report that Bolt’s current club Central Coast Mariners have player development links with Sheffield United, Ferencvaros in Hungary, Everton and Maltese side Balzan.
Bolt is still on trial with the A-League side and is yet to sign a professional contract but has impressed in his early performances so far.
He’s currently playing alongside on-loan Aston Villa forward Ross McCormack for the Gosford-based club, having spent time training with Borussia Dortmund earlier in the year.
The world record holder, 32, retired from athletics following the 2017 World Championships and celebrated his two goals against Macarthur South West United with his famous lightning bolt celebration.
Central Coast Mariners have had long-term links with Bramall Lane as a sister club of United.
