Ferguson told Inside United magazine on Wednesday that he would consider inviting Bolt to play in next year’s Real Madrid Legends match.
A lifelong Manchester United fan, Bolt has already been to Old Trafford since his triple gold medal-winning exploits, telling the crowd ahead of last month’s 3-2 win over Fulham that they needed to persuade Ferguson to sign him.
“He’s been to Carrington a couple of times and he did help Ronaldo with his sprinting,” Ferguson told Inside United.
“He’s a bit of a character and a big United fan.
“But it’s interesting he says he would like to play in a charity game.
“It could be brilliant, and next year, when we play Real Madrid’s Legends again, there could be opportunities to bring him in and see how he does.”
