Usain Bolt wants to make sure his dream of playing for Manchester United is still alive - despite the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The sprint king wants Ferguson to hook him up with a meeting with David Moyes so he can talk over his plans to turn out for Manchester United one day.

Bolt and Ferguson met on several occasions, and the double Olympic champion was set to play in a charity match at Old Trafford before his athletics commitments put paid to that.

But he wants to make sure his chance to play in his beloved United shirt isn't over now that Ferguson has stepped down.

Speaking to Sport magazine, Bolt said: "I'm waiting for Alex to put the meeting together [with Moyes], so he can let him know that Usain is pretty much part of the Manchester team, and he should just take care of him when it is time to go.

"Football is on the cards when I retire. Hopefully I can get a few charity matches in before then."

Bolt had jokingly requested a trial with the Premier League champions last year, and watched a match at Old Trafford following the 2012 London Olympics.

The massive United fan was reportedly set to feature in Rio Ferdinand's testimonial on August 9th, but his agent claims he will not feature due to other commitments.

The 26-year-old sprinter romped to another 100m win last month in his return to the Olympic Stadium for the Sainsbury's Anniversary Games.
