Usain Bolt offered two year contract with Champions League-chasing side agent

Posted October 16, 2018

"So I asked the lady, 'So why am I getting drug tested if I haven't signed for a club yet?' And she said they told her that all elite athletes have to get tested".

Bolt, 32, is now undergoing a trial with the Central Coast Mariners in the Australian A-League but his agent revealed last week that his client could move to Europe after receiving an offer from "a major European club". "That's the tough world of professional football", Beretta said.

It has seemingly put the Mariners on the clock to give him a full-time professional contract despite January being flagged as the probable deadline for a final decision as Bolt tries to rise to A-League standard.

"There is a club in Europe that has offered Bolt a two-year deal", Rallis told ESPN.

Though his goals certainly caught the world's attention, his football skills still leave a lot to be desired. Bolt said in a video he posted on Instagram, holding up a pink slip of paper requesting a blood and urine test.

Bolt scored twice for the Mariners on Friday in a friendly match against Macarthur South West United which captured global attention.

Media reports suggest the Mariners are waiting for governing body Football Federation Australia (FFA) to decide whether it will contribute to a potential Aus$3 million (Dh7.85m) offer to Bolt.

"It's very much, the ball in the Mariners' court".

The Mariners hierarchy have not been officially informed of any impending exit by Bolt's London-based agent Ricky Simms, despite Valletta's own declaration that a contract is in the offing.

"If they get to that [signing] point then we'll look at what's feasible for us but it can't be for the marquee player fund", he said.
