Usain Bolt has been desperately trying to earn a contract at Central Coast Mariners while on trial but reports have emerged saying that the world's fastest man has a two-year contract on the table from a European club.
Fifa 98's Usain Bolt is seen during an exhibition football match between France's 1998 World Cup's French football national team and FIFA 98 composed with former worldwide players, to mark the 20th anniversary of France's 1998 World Cup victory, on June 12, 2018 at the U Arena in Nanterre, near Paris.
Bolt is now on trial at the Central Coast Mariners and scored his first two goals for the A-League side last week.
"How am I going to get a drug test today?"
The Jamaican, who previously trained with Absa Premiership side Mamelodi Sundowns as well as Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, has made no secret of his aspirations to play professional football.
"So I asked the lady, 'Why am I getting drug tested when I haven't signed for a club yet?' and she said they told her I'm an elite athlete so I have to get tested".
In an Instagram post on Monday morning, Bolt said he was being tested as he is an "elite athlete" despite retiring from athletics in 2017.
Tony Rallis, Bolt's representative during his time in Australia, told ESPN's Stephanie Brantz: "There is a club in Europe that has offered Bolt a two-year deal".
'I wasn't really focusing on Bolt too much, I was more anxious about Ross McCormack and also Jordan Murray who I played with before he joined the Mariners, ' Symons told ESPN.
Central Coast Mariners have had long-term links with Bramall Lane as a sister club of United.
