Louis van Gaal has previously stated that he hopes to sign a “speedy winger” in January and Bolt – the world’s fastest man – reckons his club would like what they see if they gave him the chance to impress.
Speaking to MUTV, Bolt said: “In my mind I think I should do a trial and see if they would say ‘Alright, come on in’ or if they would say ‘No, you are not any good’
“I think I would be pretty good because I am fit, I am quick, I can control the ball and I understand all of the play.
Usain Bolt has joked that Manchester United would give him a five-year deal if they saw him play
“So I think if I do a trial then they would say, ‘You know what, here is a contract for five years! You are 30 years old, here’s a five-year contract. Let’s just do it!'”
United travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday (12.45pm) to take on Watford.
A win would would put Bolt’s team top of the table, for a while a least, before Leicester and Arsenal play their matches at 3pm.
