Usain Bolt’s agent has confirmed that the sprinter-turned-football player has received an offer from a major European club.

The 32-year-old is currently on trial with Australian side Central Coast Mariners, where he made worldwide headlines with two goals in their pre-season friendly with Macarthur South West United.

Bolt turned his attentions to football after retiring from athletics, having won eight Olympic gold medals for Jamaica between 2008 and 2016. He initially trained with Norwegian side Stromgodset as well as Borussia Dortmund and played in the Soccer Aid charity game before being offered a trial with A-League club Central Coast Mariners.

However, his time in Australia may end up being cut short as agent Tony Rallis confirmed that there is a contract offer on the table for the former sprinter.

“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 move is just one of a number of offers Bolt is considering, with the Mariners deciding whether to keep him on for the 2018-19 A-League season. He said he would like to stay with the club, especially after they gave him the chance to show his worth in the friendly with Macarthur South West United.

“It was my first proper game with the first team,” he told Fox Sports. “I’m just happy I got the chance and I’m proud of myself.

“It was a big deal. I think scoring a goal in your first proper match, it’s a big deal. Your first start and scoring two goals, it was a good feeling.

“This is what I worked towards, I tried to improve myself, I tried to get better, and I'm on the way to doing that.

“Now the discussion comes up because the season starts next week.

“We have to sit down with the coach, the management side and figure out how we go forward, what’s the plan, if they’re going to sign me or I need to do more. So I’m just waiting on that.

“I’m keen, that’s why I’m here – to play my best and to try to get into the team.” (Goal.com)
