Usain Bolt is on the hunt for new challenges to conquer and a potential career in professional football is an option he's giving considerable attention to.

In his career as a sprinter, Bolt has amassed an incredible nine Olympic gold medals across the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay. But now he's keen to seek success in football and given the athletic event he specialises in, his skills would be easily transferable onto the pitch.

As it stands, plans are already in motion for this remarkable career switch, with a move to Borussia Dortmund, currently being negotiated.

In an interview with The Guardian, Bolt says:

"We’ve genuinely been talking to people.... we'll see what happens."

As for his ultimate ambition, Bolt has designs on a move to Manchester United:

"For me, if I could get to play for Manchester United, that would be like a dream come true. Yes, that would be epic."
