Eight-time Olympic gold medalist and world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt has been offered a two-year contract by a club in Europe after he scored twice for Australian side Central Coast Mariners in their friendly against Macarthur South West United.
Tony Rallis, the Jamaican’s agent during his stint Down Under, has told ESPN: ‘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.”
Although, it’s yet unclear which club is trying to sign Bolt but ESPN report that Central Coast Mariners boast connections with sides around the world, such as Sheffield United and Ferencvaros in Hungary. They also claim Everton and Maltese Premier League side Balzan are ‘player development partners’.
Bolt who retired from athletics in 2017, has trained with Borussia Dortmund, South African club Sundownsand Norway‘s Stromsgodset.
