Have Manchester United found their new signing?

Usain Bolt's success on the track is unparalleled and the Jamaican sprinter now thinks he has what it takes to be a hit in a different sport.

The 100m and 200m world record holder is a keen football fan and, when he's not practising for the next big race meet, can often be found swapping his spikes for studs and the track for the pitch.

Bolt is a huge supporter of Manchester United and, if he had to choose another career, has previously expressed a desire to be playing for Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Devils.

The 25-year-old certainly thinks he has what it takes to make the grade at Old Trafford, and was recently filmed sending a message to Ferguson extoling his own footballing virtues.

"Make sure Alex Ferguson gets this tape," said Bolt as he laced up his trademark gold footwear prior to a "trial run" on a dusty pitch during a break from sprint training.

However, although Bolt may exude confidence, his skills on the football pitch are not really up to scratch and he is unlikely to be receiving a call from Ferguson any time soon.

You can watch Bolt's Manchester United audition in the video below.
