Bolt retired from athletics following the World Championships in August and has spoken of his interest in trying his hand at the beautiful game.
And the club’s CEO, Hans-Joachim Watzke, has once again opened the door for Bolt to come and join up with the German outfit.
‘Our word is our bond’, he told Reviersport. ‘I will meet [Puma CEO] Bjorn Gulden this week. And that’s on our list.’
Both the Dortmund and the 31-year-old are sponsored by sportswear giant Puma.
Bolt was in Austin for the weekend’s US Grand Prix and reaffirmed his desire to swap the track for the football pitch.
‘It’s a personal goal, I don’t care what people really think about it,’ Bolt told reporters at the US Grand Prix on Sunday.
‘I am not going to lie to myself, if I feel I can’t do it, I am going to say ‘Forget this’. I am not going to embarrass myself.
‘It’s a dream, it’s another chapter of my life that I really want to do. If you have a dream or something you really want to do, you want try to see where it could go.’
‘My hamstring is just keeping back right now, in two weeks I can train again and get back to some shape, then I can really explore that situation,’ Bolt said.
‘They (Borussia Dortmund) said the invitation is always open, so it is all about me getting over my injury and into shape. Then I can explore it and do the trials and see what level I am at.
‘For me it’s just to try to see if I really can be one of the best, anything I am doing, I’ll try to do it at my best.’
