In early August, Usain Bolt expressed his desire to, at least, try out for Manchester United. While most folks probably dismissed the story as being simply a shot in the dark, it looks like Bolt will actually get a chance to suit up with the rest of the Red Devils. According the Man U's coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who spoke with the Inside United Magazine about the prospect of having the Jamaican sprinter on his team:

“Usain’s a character and a big United fan. But it’s interesting he says he’d like to play in a charity game. It could be brilliant, and next year when we play Real Madrid’s Legends again, there could be opportunities to bring him up and see how he does.”

If the coach of Man U is giving his seal of approval, you gotta think that there is a very, very good possibility that we'll be seeing Bolt in a United jersey next year against Real Madrid of all teams. Honestly, who doesn't want to see this happen?
